Thought I'd Share

Yes, I am the sharing type. Wish it would rub off on my kids!

This was devotion this morning from the book, "Jesus Calling" by Sharon Young
Think of this as Jesus talking to you:
"I want you to learn a new habit. Try saying,"I trust you, Jesus" in response to whatever happens to you. If there is time, think about who I AM in all My power and Glory; ponder also the depth and breadth of My love for you.

This simple practice will help you to see Me in every situation, acknowledging My sovereign control over the universe. When you view events from this perspective - through the LIght of My universal Presence - fear loses its grip on you. Adverse circumstances become growth opportunities when you affirm your trust in Me no matter what. You receive blessings gratefully, realizing they flow directly from My hand of grace. Your continual assertion of trusting ME will strengthen our relationship and keep you close to ME."

Kasey, this was good. Thank you for "sharing"...(boys share?...are you kidding?!) I copied it to keep on hand and ponder over the next few days. Beth posted something a long time ago along the same lines, that I printed in a REALLY BIG font and hung on my fridge to read daily...she said, "I've come to learn from God that worry is a waving red flag to the enemy. It is a dead giveaway that the person owning it does not trust God. The shield of faith is down. So fire when ready. Every time we're tempted to take it all on and worry something to death, let's say aloud from the depths of our souls, 'I choose to TRUST YOU, LORD. I choose TRUST. I choose YOU.'
I thought that was worthy of a "share". Have a great, Jesus filled week!
