5 Minutes With Jesus by Sheila Walsh

Sheila Walsh has a heart for those who are hurting and that really comes through in this devotional.

Walsh shares lessons she has learned from her own experiences, from people she has met, from children, and even from animals. These are encouraging devotions and would be good for those feeling overwhelmed or despair. People who have lost hope will have reason to hope again. All of us will be reminded of how much God loves us.

Even though these devotions are powerful, they are also short. Walsh understands we're busy and adding one more thing to the routine may seem overwhelming. Each reading can be done in five minutes.

I love Walsh's honesty. She tells us of her struggle with depression and being admitted to a psych ward. She shares her surrender after her reluctance to forgive another. There are many of her devotions that will impact each of us personally. They are like a light in a dark night.

The format is simple. There is a reading, a take away point, and several verses to read.

This little book of fifty devotionals would make a good gift for someone who needs encouragement.
