Book Description: Spending time with Jesus will make all the difference in your busy day.
We balance so many things day after day--families, jobs, church, sports. Sometimes it feels like there is no time left for the most important thing: spending time with Jesus. But Sheila Walsh will help us do just that through these concise but substantial daily readings.
Each entry includes Scripture, a brief devotional thought, and a helpful takeaway. Even after just a few minutes of reading, you will have spent time with God's truth in a meaningful way, and be inspired to think on that truth and live in response to it the rest of the day.
Sheila is a master of short but profound thoughts such as "Peace is not the absence of trouble but the presence of Christ," which" "have been retweeted time and time again. Readers will be thrilled to find these kinds of encouraging words--along with Sheila's characteristic approach of combining honesty, vulnerability, and humor with Scripture--in "Five Minutes with Jesus. "They'll be reminded of how powerful it is to be in the presence of Jesus, and how much He wants us to stay close to Him every minute of the day.
Wanda's Thoughts: 5 Minutes with Jesus is a compilation of daily devotions that will give comfort, peace, and hope to those who have minimal time to spend reading Scripture. Each day a reading is accompanied by a selection of four or five verses of Scripture that you can leisurely look up and experience the word of God. These readings will encourage you to reflect on what the Word has to say to you and how you can apply it to your own needs. My rating is 4 stars.
