Jesus Today (A Blog Giveaway!!)

4815-jesus today.jpg

This little book is a gem!  My mom gave it to me several weeks ago and said, “Here, I picked up this little devotional book for you.  I think the lady that wrote it has chronic fatigue syndrome.”    I thought it sounded interesting so, I started reading from the beginning where Sarah Young explains her journey with chronic fatigue syndrome and then Lyme disease.


Sarah Young is also the author of the ever popular Jesus Calling book.  I really enjoyed that one too!

And her Jesus Today book is even better!  At least to me it is, because it speaks directly to one who is going through suffering.  It is a daily devotional type book with a small reading written by Sarah and then several Scriptures that go directly along with her writings.  A very short, daily read, but it has spoken to my soul so deeply.  She writes from a place of pain, but peppered with so much grace.

The last 8-9 months have been plain awful for me.  I am having NEW symptoms, some added diagnosis, and lots of testing.  I haven’t felt this bad in a very long time.  And this is in stark contrast to the several good months I had at the end of last year.  Needless to say, I have had some very dark days and this book has been such an encouragement to me.  I will eventually blog about what is going on with my health.  Stay tuned.  I have learned so much through my new doctor and we have gotten to some root problems through lots of testing and lots of trial and error.  Not feeling better yet, but we now have a game plan.

I encourage every one of my readers that is facing chronic illness to get your hands on a copy of Jesus Today if you can.  It will put a small little spot of sunshine and understanding in your day.  And because I love this book so much, I am having my first blog giveaway!!!!  I will be giving away TWO copies of Jesus Today and I am VERY excited about it.  My gift to you!  So, here’s what you need to know:

Just leave a comment in the comments section, right here on this blog post, by Friday, October 4, 2013 at midnight EST.  There are no tricks or anything.  I am not looking for new blog traffic, just want to offer my readers a little gift.  So, your comment doesn’t need to be anything fancy.  Just say something like, “I would love to win a copy of Jesus Today!”  After the deadline, I will randomly choose two winners.  It will be random, I promise!!!  Come back to my blog on Monday, October 7, 2013, to see if you are one of the winners.  This giveaway will only be open to my readers in the USA.  I apologize to my overseas friends, but for the sake of shipping costs, this is limited to those of us here in America.  However, I highly encourage all my international readers to visit your local Christian bookstore and see if you can pick up a copy.  I am in no way profiting from my publicity of this book.  I just love it so much and I wanted you all to know!

Blessings!  Now leave a comment and enter the giveaway!

P.S.  I will send reminders of this giveaway periodically through my Facebook Page.  If you have not “liked” my page yet, go here and do so.  It’s a great way to interact with other readers!!!

    • My friend just told me last night to try it for 3 weeks and that I would never want to go back. I am seriously contemplating doing so. She has a severe bladder pain issue that is a word too big for me to spell. But she says it’s like she’s been given a new bladder. Best wishes. 🙂

  1. I love Jesus Calling, I have the app on my phone so that it is with me every where I go. I would love a copy of Jesus Today to go with it. 🙂 I also have chronic pain with Fibromyalgia. I’m praying your days get better.

  2. Does your friend have interstitial cystitis? That is what I have along with fibro and IBS. I have just recently found relief from IBS by not eating gluten or dairy 😦 Praying that you get an answer and thanks for the book recommendation!

  3. Jesus calling is my favorite devotion of all time. I was diagnosed with Lupus five years ago, and I too understand daily pain. During my first year after being diagnosed, Sarah’s book brought me a lot of comfort even in the midst of uncertainty and pain. Can’t wait to get her next book, especially since I just recently had a set back, with a new set of problems. Hope I win!

  4. Hi Ann! It’s been a long time since we’ve chatted but I thought I’d drop a line. I too have been going through new tests and have additional diagnoses. Will try to email soon! Think of you often and pray for you. I know this road is tough. Hang in there! God is ever present and faithful to us. Love and hugs, Kelsey

  5. Ooo, ooo, Ps. I would love to win a copy of Jesus Today! I have read Jesus Calling and am so intrigued by this next book 😀
