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!
