"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 ~ Feb 6th

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.

 

Come to Me and rest.  I am all about you, to bless and restore.  Breathe Me in with each breath.  The way just ahead of you is very steep,  Slow down and cling tightly to My hand.  I am teaching you a difficult lesson, learned only by hardship.

Lift up empty hands of faith to receive My precious Presence.  Light, Life Joy, and Peace flow freely through this gift.  When your focus turns away from Me, you grasp for other things.  You drop the glowing gift of My Presence as you reach for lifeless ashes.  Return to Me; regain My Presence.

"Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."~Matthew 11:28-30

 

Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing~1 Timothy 2:8

 

Slow down.. how many times have I heard that? And not just from Him.  Return to Him and regain His presence!  I need to keep a tight grip on His hand and stay focused on Him in everything!!

I am doing the same devotional. The book says "the way just ahead of you is very steep. Slow down and tang. My hand" What do u think it means by "doesn't steep"

Hi there!
I am thinking that it just means that for us that follow Him there are always more struggles because we are more aware of what we need to do and that the people in this world, that don't understand or know Him, will always argue with us. Or that just that there are so many evils in this world and it is a hard walk to walk but if we have His hand He will help us up those 'steep' hills!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
