Jesus Calling

One of my very loyal and kind readers reached out to me after reading my post on the waitress.  She reminded me of a daily devotional that I own but haven't read in awhile called Jesus Calling.  It's by Sarah Young and it's written as if Jesus is speaking directly to you.  The words are always comforting and soothing and the lead me to read the passages of the Bible that she references.  

Today, the words were exactly what I needed. I'd like to share some of it with you just in case you are feeling a bit hopeless or run down by all that life is handing to you.  We can handle anything one at a time; it's when it all happens at once that we begin to feel discouraged.  We begin to wonder if it will ever turn around.  The answer is yes, it will.  As long as we turn to Jesus.

On some days, your circumstances and your physical condition feel out of balance:  The demands on you seem far greater than your strength.  Days like that present a choice between two alternatives-giving up or relying on Me.  Even if you wrongly chose the first alternative, I will not reject you.  You can turn to Me at any point, and I will help you crawl out of the mire of discouragement.  I will infuse My strength into you moment by moment, giving you all that you need for this day.  Trust Me by relying on My empowering Presence.

Psalm 42:5; 2 Corinthians 13:4; Jeremiah 31:25

Sending love and prayers to all of you today for countless blessings.
