"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Jesus Calling~ Day 15

Jesus callingSo.. a friend of mine was/is doing a daily devotional called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.  I decided to head on over iTunes and see what they had since I had a gift card for iTunes.  They had it so I got it.  I really like it.  The one I got is more like an app than the audible book but I still like it.  I haven’t had it that long but just wanted to share.  I will be posting my daily devotions for a while too since I have nothing much else to write about lately.


My face is shining upon you, beaming out peace that transcends understanding.  you are surrounded by a sea of problems, but you are face to face with Me, your peace.  As long as you focus on Me you are safe, if you gaze too long at the myriad of problems around you, you will sink under the weight of your burdens.  When you start to sink simply call out, “Help me Jesus” and I will lift you up. 

The closer you live to Me, the safer you are.  The circumstances around you undulating, and there  are treacherous waves around you.  Fix your eyes on Me, the One who never changes.  By the time those waves reach you, they will have shrunk to proportions of My design.  I am always beside you, helping you face today’s waves.  The future is a phantom, seeking to spook you, laugh at the future, stay close to Me.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:7
But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, "Lord, save me!" ~Matthew 14:30


fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God ~Hebrews 12:2 Pin It
