Jesus Calling- Day 30

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 will be posting my daily devotions for a while too since I have nothing much else to write about lately.
 
Worship Me only.  Whatever occupies your mind the most becomes your god.  Worries, if indulged, develop into idols.  Anxiety gains a life of its own, parasitically infesting your mind.  Break free from this bondage by affirming your trust in Me and refreshing yourself in My Presence.  What goes on in your mind is invisible, undetectable to other people.  But I read your thoughts continually, searching for evidence of trust in Me.  I rejoice when your mind turns toward Me.  Guard your thoughts diligently; good thought-choices will keep you close to Me.

They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
~Psalm 112:7

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me
~1 Corinthians 13:11




This is something I am still working on.. when I go to pray.. too many times I have other things on my mind.  A lot of times it is others I am praying for but I will be praying and then just wonder off from that thought onto something different. 

I know that a lot of people do this but I need to get better at being with Him and meditating on His word!!  Not what is going on in this world.  I need to shut my mind off so I can be more focused and open to what He wants from me. 

I am very thankful that He is continually searching my thoughts though.. well sometimes thankful Smile, but He knows my hearts and knows that I am trying.. I am so much better than I used to be! Pin It
