My Review
I collect devotionals and I'm glad to have added Jesus Daily to my collection. This unique devotional is based on the major themes found on Jesus Daily Facebook page. This book consists of 365 interactive devotions that encourage us readers to daily reflect on our relationship with Jesus and to share about Jesus through social media avenues. Some of the themes include Jesus is the answer, Jesus changed my life, Jesus heals, I need Jesus, etc. Each devotion starts with a Bible verse and ends with "Connect" (a daily interaction suggestion). The "Connect" section challenges us readers to do something online (and offline) to share our faith & our love, to encourage others, and to connect with others. Some examples are: "Send an e-card to someone who might need encouragement as they experience a trial or hardship," "Post a picture on Instagram or Pinterest that illustrates humility," and "Find a song, video clip, or interview that illustrates godly courage in action and post a link at JesusDaily.com."  It has been a pleasure reading this uplifting devotional. Each devotion is short, concise, and insightful. If you're already online a lot, you will appreciate all the great ideas given in this book on how to actively make God known. Check it out and enjoy celebrating Jesus daily!
"It takes a remarkably strong person to speak and to act with gentleness. You must know who you are and Whose you are in order to let go of having to prove yourself, exercise power over others, or demand the attention of entitlement." (from yesterday's devotion)

"Our heart muscles, both literally and figuratively, require regular exercise as well. When we're not praying, giving, serving, and loving on a daily basis, it becomes harder and harder to feel connected to God, to relate to other people, and to feel the purposeful joy that comes from serving." (from today's devotion)
