Deadlines and bills, illnesses and fears about the future, frustrations with others and ourselves . . . there’s enough going on in our lives to make us feel overwhelmed and anxious, if not panicked! But Jesus said that we could expect this, that trials and sorrows are simply part of life on earth, and He offers an amazing gift that changes everything: His peace. He tells us, “The peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid” (John 14:27 nlt).

No matter how big the storm, God is bigger.
The 5 Minutes with Jesus series is the perfect way to start your day with peace of mind and a peaceful heart.
My thoughts: As a mom, author, homeschooler, pastor's wife who is literally always busy. This book has come in handy many times. It is short enough to read in five minute spurts, when I get up in the morning, or for bedtime devotions, or for times when I need to reach out for five minutes with Jesus. I keep my copy beside my bed and even my children make use of it. I love the small size which makes it easy to carry if I need to read it on the road. It includes a short devotional, scripture, and an application. A great devotional, highly recommended. 5 stars.
