Jesus Calling

Today I’m going to get a little deeper with y’all, so bear with me.

When I first started this blog, I knew I wanted to include more than just clothes and all the other fun stuff I find. I really wanted to put a part of myself into this blog, really make this blog reflect who I am. It’s been hard trying to figure out how to do that without seeming like I was preaching (I am, after all, the big sister and I tend to do that a lot).

So here’s my first attempt. It probably won’t be perfect, and people might not care to read it, but I feel like this is an important part to include in my blog.

How cute is this cover! 

Recently I bought this book, called Jesus Calling because I had heard so much about it and had become really curious. Now I’m not the most religious person (anymore) but I knew something was missing in my life and thought this book might be a good place to start. Wow, it has changed my life! Literally.

Jesus Calling is a 365-day devotional. I’m barely on the 4th day (since I just got it and there’s an entry for each day of the year) and already felt compelled to share it with yall!

Just listen to this:

You are on the right path. Listen more to Me and less to your doubts. I am leading you along the way I designed just for you. Therefore, it is a lonely way, humanly speaking. But I go before you as well as alongside you, so you are never alone.

Or this:

Stop judging and evaluating yourself, for this is not your role. Above all, stop comparing yourself with other people. This produces feelings of pride and inferiority, sometimes a mixture of both. I lead My children along a path that is uniquely tailor-made for him or her. Comparing is not only wrong; it is meaningless.

And one more:

A grateful heart protects you from negative thinking.

I don’t know about you, but it’s stuff like this that help you get through the day, especially when you’re having a bad one.

My department at my corporate day job has been going through some stuff and it has really been really affecting me in a negative way. But since I started reading this devotional, I’ve started gaining some Peace knowing that I can let go of that stress because it’s already taken care of!

If you’ve read this book before or have thought of getting a copy of your own, let me know! I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!

XO, Mayra
