My mother-in-law gave me a wonderful Christmas gift a few years ago; my Jesus Calling Devotional by Sarah Young. There’s a Jesus Calling app as well – which I find incredibly convenient because my devotional is always at my fingertips. If you’re still on the hunt for a great gift consider Jesus Calling!

I am the gift that continuously gives – bounteously, with no strings attached. Unconditional Love is such a radical concept that even my followers fail to grasp it fully. Absolutely nothing in heaven or on earth can cause Me to stop loving you. You may feel more loved when you are performing according to your expectations, but My Love for you is perfect; therefore it is not subject to variation. What does vary is your awareness of My Loving Presence.

When you are dissatisfied with your behavior, you tend to feel unworthy of My Love. You may unconsciously punish yourself by withdrawing from Me and attributing the distance between us to My displeasure. Instead of returning to Me and receiving My Love, you attempt to earn My approval by trying harder. All the while, I am aching to hold you in My everlasting arms, to enfold you in My Love. When you are feeling unworthy or unloved, come to me. Then ask for receptivity to My unfailing Love.

“But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation – Psalm 13:5

  1. Hi Amber~ Merry Christmas! I love the pictures of your girls – they are so precious! And Congrats on your new bundle of joy in the making:-)

    You mentioned that book ‘Jesus Calling” before and I did get the book in Dec of 2010 as a gift to myself shortly after my husband left me. I waited until Jan 1st to start reading it from the beginning – and am reading it again this year! I have really LOVED reading that book and have leaned in on what it says to me each day to help me get through this difficult time! I think of you often when I read it:-) I have purchased it as a gift for several of my friends and they love it too! THANKS for continuing to mention that book Amber. It has helped me in my relationship with Jesus as well as others I’m sure!

    Happy 2013.
