I little over a year ago a precious friend gave me a copy of this devotional, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. It's been a HUGE blessing to me and I devour the mediations each day. I even got an app on my phone with the daily meditations ~ SO worth it.
Interestingly my friend suddenly lost her husband six week prior to Iain's death. We're walking a similar path and I'm so grateful to have her perspective and friendship.
I thought there might be some folks who could relate to today's post.
February 10th ~ Trust Me Enough
Trust Me enough to spend ample time with Me, pushing back the demands of the day. Refuse to feel guilty about something that is so pleasing to Me, the King of the universe. Because I am omnipotent, I am able to bend time and events in your favor. You will find that you can accomplish more in less time, after you have given yourself to Me in rich communion. Also, as you align yourself with My perspective, you can sort out what is important and what is not.
Don’t fall into the trap of being constantly on the go. Many, many things people do in My Name have no value in My kingdom. To avoid doing meaningless work, stay in continual communication with Me. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.
"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her." ~Luke 10:41-42
I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. ~Psalm 32:8 (NASB)
