"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 9th

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.

Seek My face more and more.  You are really just beginning your journey of intimacy with Me.  It is not an easy road, but it is a delightful and privileged way: a treasure hunt.  I am the Treasure, and the Glory of My Presence glistens and shimmers along the way.  Hardships are part of the journey too.  I mete them out ever so carefully, in just the right dosage, with a tenderness you can hardly imagine.  Do not recoil from afflictions, since they are among My most favored gifts. Trust Me and don’t be afraid, for I am your Strength and Song.

My heart says of you, "Seek His face!"
Your face, Lord, I will seek. ~Psalm 27:8

 

 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us ~2 Corinthians 4:7

 

Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord Himself, is my strength and my defense; He has become my salvation."

~Isaiah 12:2

 

I do really need to lean on Him more when I am going through trials and not just give up because it is easiest.  I need to seek His face, lean on Him, let Him lead me and give me that strength I need!!
