"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 April 11th

This is the day that I have made.  Rejoice and be glad in it.  Begin the day with open hands of faith, ready to receive all that I am pouring into this brief portion of your life.  Be careful not to complain about anything, even the weather, since I am the Author of your circumstances.  The best way to handle unwanted situations is to thank Me for them.  This act of faith frees you from resentment and frees Me to work My ways into the situation, so that good emerges from it.

To find Joy in this day, you must live within its boundaries.  I knew what I was doing when I divided time into twenty-four-hour segments.  I understand human fragility, and I know that you can bear the weight of only one day at a time.  Do not worry about tomorrow or get stuck in the past.  There is abundant Life in My Presence today.

 

The LORD has done it this very day;
   let us rejoice today and be glad. ~Psalm 118:24

 

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 3:12-14

 

My thoughts: 

I love the passage from Philippians!  Love how it is a reminder that we need to forget about what is behind and strain toward what is ahead!!  Press on toward that goal to win the prize for which GOD has called me!!  Heavenward in Christ Jesus!!  AMEN!!!

 

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 am sharing them with everyone because each day is such a wonderful reminder of His love for us!!!

I can relate very much to today's passage .. Life is very difficult at times and in my opinion impossible to live a joyous life without the help of our savior ,Jesus Christ.. I must remain faithful and trusting of his presence at all times..even in the times of extreme hardship.. I must remember that he will work all things for the good of his love..I should thank him every day and also thank him for my trials and tribulations , in doing so it will demonstrate my trust that God truly loves his children and it will heal me of the pain that comes along with each trial.. One day at a time I can rely on and thank God for his unending amazing love !
