Devotion

My all time favorite devotional is "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young. The author wrote each day's devotion as if Jesus is talking to you. Very powerful, comforting and inspiring. ( The author does not know I am talking about her book and I am not receiving anything by mentioning it here.) I simply love the book and thought it worth telling you about.

Today's entry:

I AM YOUR LORD! Seek Me as Friend and Lover of your soul, but remember that I am also King of kings- sovereign over all. You can make some plans as you gaze into the day that stretches out before you. But you need to hold those plans tentatively, anticipating that I may have other ideas. The most important thing to determine is what to do right now. Instead of scanning the horizon of your life, looking for things that need to be done, concentrate on the task before you and the One who never leaves your side. Let everything else fade into the background. This will unclutter your mind, allowing Me to occupy more and more of your consciousness.

Trust me to show you what to do when you have finished what you are doing now. I will guide you step by step, as you bend your will to Mine. Thus you stay close to Me on the path of Peace.

Then she adds a few scripture verses that apply to the reading.
Isn't that beautiful?



Proverbs 19:21
"...to shine on those living in darkness and in shadow of death.
