It's a new month, and that means a new pick for Delilah's Book Club!
The timing of this month's choice could not be better. We've had catastrophic flooding in our lower Gulf states, as well as terrifying wild fires in the West.
While I'd picked the book long before recent events (because daily devotional time keeps us grounded and able to find meaning in our everyday madness,) I feel it's especially significant RIGHT NOW.
Life today is full of difficulties—loss, sadness, fear. Amid these challenges, joy often feels impossible or out of reach. But Jesus offers life abundant—a life brimming with joy. Jesus Always, the new 365-day devotional from the bestselling author of Jesus Calling, was written as part of Sarah Young’s exploration of the promises of joy in scripture.
Many may not know Sarah herself has struggled with impaired health for many years—seeing many doctors and trying a variety of medical treatments. Though she has suffered significant limitations in her own life, she continues to find joy in her journey.
Like all of my listeners, I've found many days when Sarah’s words, or a Scripture reference from one of her books, was the difference between anxiety or peace, and many times I felt it needed to be passed along to a friend who was struggling.
Jesus Always now sits on my nightstand, and I'm sure it will find a place on yours.
