The 368-page book contains 150 devotions. Each devotion, approximately 200 words in length, is presented on a left page followed by three or four corresponding scriptures on the right page.
I love the way Young writes—as if Jesus is talking to the reader. I have to give credit to Tama Fortner who adapted the book for younger readers. She does a great job presenting the devotions in a simple and easy to understand manner. Yet, the devotions are not watered down. They remain quite meaty.
An example of this is in the following excerpt from devotion #141, Leave Room for Mystery.
“… My ways are often a mystery to you—like why bad things happen to good people, or good things happen to bad people. You wish you could always know what I’m thinking, but your knowledge only goes so far.”
“… When there is something you can’t make sense of, trust Me—and trust that there are some things too wonderful for you to know.”
This devotion is followed by 1 Timothy 3:16, Job 1:20-22, and Job 42:3. These are wonderful things to ponder and discuss, right?
