All To Jesus by Robert Morgan

“Cast all your cares on him.” “Love the Lord with all your heart.” “I can do all things . . . .” You’d be surprised how often the word “all” appears in the Bible—thousands of times. And with each description of God’s comprehen- sive promises, each reminder of our complete blessing in Christ, each appeal for our full and total surrender, His reputation grows larger before our eyes.

We see again what He can do. We see again who we can be.

From Robert J. Morgan (100 Bible Verses Everyone Should Know by Heart, Then Sings My Soul) comes All to Jesus, a choice sampling of the Bible’s most “all”-encompassing statements, surrounded each day by inspiring stories, personal reflections, and the encouraging assurance that you are cared for in ways you never imagined.

Derived from the pages of real life and a pastor’s heart, each daily reading meets you in an ever-deeper place, revealing God’s immeasurable power and keen attention to the smallest detail. Truly, He is all you need. All year long.

My review:

   In this devotional, the author takes a verse every day that has the word "all" in it, focusing on how much God cares for us. Each day has a verse and personal reflections and stories from the author. The devotionals are not long, but they are interesting and relative to the Christian life. I didn't read the whole book, but I did read several days worth of devotionals and was inspired and encouraged by what I read.

   This is a 365 day devotional, and each one is labeled "day 1", etc, so it can be started at any time, starting with the first page. I think it was a neat idea to use verses with the word "all" in them and write a devotional book around those verses. It also comes with a link to free downloads of more than 40 songs.
