Today's reading in the book, Jesus Calling, really spoke to me, and I wanted to share it on here with you.
LEARN TO LIVE about 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 15:33 (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.
