Jesus Calling

I've been meaning to write this post since before the new year started or at least by January. But since I didn't, here it is. There is a book that has radically changed my quiet times and I've given it to several friends and just wanted to share it. It's called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. If you need a little word to start your day off on the right foot or you're wanting to dig into the word a little deeper this is a great book because it has a little of both. It has some practical encouragement and it also has verses at the bottom that she notes incase you have time to dig into the word a little deeper. It is a daily devotional that is short and sweet. If you end up getting it, let me know how you like it!

"Come to me for rest and refreshment. The journey has been too much for you, and you are bone-weary. Do not be ashamed of your exhaustion. Instead, see it as an opportunity for Me to take charge of your life.
Remember that I can fit everything into a pattern for good, including the things you wish were different. Start with where you are at this point in time and space, accepting that this is where I intend you to be. You will get through today one step, one moment at a time. Your main responsibility is to remain attentive to Me, letting Me guide you through the many choices along your pathway.
This sounds like an easy assignment, but it is not. Your desire to live in My Presence goes against the grain of "the world, the flesh, and the devil." Much of your weariness results from your constant battle against these opponents. However, you are on the path of My choosing, so do not give up! Hope in Me, for you will again praise Me for the help of My Presence."
Romans 8:28; Psalm 42:11
