Today’s daily devotional from Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling really struck me. I wrote it out for you all so you could all enjoy it, as well!
“STOP TRYING TO WORK THINGS OUT before their times have come. Accept the limitations of living one day at a time. When something comes to your attention, ask Me whether or not it is part of today’s agenda. If it isn’t, release it into My care and go on about today’s duties. When you follow this practice, there will be a beautiful simplicity about your life: a time for everything, and everything in its time.
A life lived close to Me is not complicated or cluttered. When your focus is on My Presence, many things that once troubled you lose their power over you. Though the world around you is messy and confusing, remember that I have overcome the world. I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have Peace.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.”
John 16:33 “I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
