Jesus Calling: Devotion
Jesus Calling - January 22
Strive to trust Me in more and more areas of your life. Anything that tends to make you anxious is a growth opportunity. Instead of running away from these challenges, embrace them, eager to gain all the blessings I have hidden in the difficulties. If you believe that I am sovereign over every aspect of your life, it is possible to trust Me in all situations. Don’t waste energy regretting the way things are or thinking about what might have been. Start at the present moment—accepting things exactly as they are—and search for My way in the midst of those circumstances.
Trust is like a staff you can lean on, as you journey uphill with Me. If you are trusting in Me consistently, the staff will bear as much of your weight as needed. Lean on, trust, and be confident in Me with all your heart and mind.
But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. —Psalm 52:8
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. —Proverbs 3:5–6 amp
You don’t need religion to have morals. If you can’t determine right from wrong then you lack empathy, not religion.
Read books. Care about things. Get excited. Try not to be too down on yourself. Enjoy the ever-present game of knowing.
So wild flowers will come up where you are.
You have been stony for too many years.
Try something different.
A friend who understands your tears is much more valuable than one who only knows your smiles.
Always Remember …
You are beautiful
You are worthy
You are important
You are special
You are unique
You are talented and
You are irreplaceable!
