Learn to live above your circumstances. This requires focused time with Me, the One who overcame the world. Trouble and distress are woven into the very fabric of this perishing world. Only My Life in you can empower you to face this endless flow of problems with good cheer.
As you sit quietly in My Presence, I shine Peace into your troubled mind and heart. Little by little, you are freed from earthly shackles and lifted up above your circumstances. you gain My perspective on your life, enabling you to distinguish between what is important and what is not. Rest in My Presence, receiving Joy that no one can take away from you.
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”~John 16:33 (NKJV)
So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. ~John 16:22
There it is again. Come to me and enjoy the PEACE of My Presence!! Peace… His peace, not the peace of this world but HIS peace! In the KJV Peace is mentioned 429 times! Maybe He’s trying to tell us something. The word Joy is mentioned 155 times! Just amazing!
So.. 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.
