tangled and darkened...


From Jesus Today, May 25th, by Sarah Young:

 

THE WORLD IS TOO MUCH WITH YOU, My child. Your mind
leaps from problem to problem to problem, tangling your thoughts in anxious knots. When you think like that, you leave Me out of your worldview and your mind becomes darkened. Though I yearn to help, I will not violate your freedom. I stand silently in the background of your mind, waiting for you to remember that I am with you.

 

When you turn from your problems to My Presence, your load is immediately lighter. Circumstances may not have changed, but we carry your burdens together. Your compulsion to “fix” everything gives way to deep, satisfying connection with Me. Together we can handle whatever this day brings.

ISAIAH 41:10; ZEPHANIAH 3:17;

PSALM 34:19


This is why I adore this daily devotional book. Five out of seven days a week it is truly speaking to ME. To only ME! Well, of course, it’s not just speaking to only ME. But it feels like it. You know? Like the times you’re in church and it truly seems like the message from the pulpit is specifically for YOU?

Manchester, England. TLC’s BIG MOVE coming—although so many things are up in the air for her. My Sweet Hubby’s (MSH) and my future. (We need to sell our place. It’s a lot to care for at our ages. It’s hard to wrap our heads about such a BIG CHANGE.) Anxiety.

So today I’m going to do my best to focus my mind, heart, soul and spirit on Jesus Christ, My Lord and Savior.

Happy Friday Eve, Y’all!

smooches and hugs,

ELC
