Jesus Calling

     It is good that you recognize your weakness.  That keeps you looking to Me, your Strength.  Abundant life is not necessarily health and wealth; it is living in continual dependence on Me.  Instead of trying  to fit this day into a preconceived mold, relax and be on the lookout for what I am doing.  This mind-set will free you to enjoy Me and to find what I have planned for you to do.  This is far better than trying to make things go according to your own plan.
     Don't take yourself so seriously.  Lighten up and laugh with Me.  You have Me on your side, so what are you worried about?  I can equip you to do absolutely anything, as long as it is My will.  The more difficult your day, the more I yearn to help you.  Anxiety wraps you up in yourself, trapping you in your own thoughts. When you look to Me and whisper My name, you break free and receive My help.  Focus on Me, and you will find Peace in My Presence.
Philippians 4:13; Proverbs 17:22

  1. This is a perfect way to start my day since I have work, a funeral, and a comedy event I am going to tonight. Try figuring out what to where that is appropriate for all three!! But I can rest in the Lord today and just look to Him.
