JesusCalling...


From Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young, today, August 12th:



COME TO ME when you are weak and weary. Rest snugly in My everlasting arms. I do not despise your weakness, My child. Actually, it draws Me closer to you because weakness stirs up My compassion—My yearning to help. Accept yourself in your weariness, knowing that I understand how difficult your journey has been.

Do not compare yourself with others who seem to skip along their life-paths with ease. Their journeys have been different from yours, and I have gifted them with abundant energy. I have gifted you with fragility, providing opportunities for your spirit to blossom in My Presence. Accept this gift as a sacred treasure: delicate, yet glowing with brilliant Light. Rather than struggling to disguise or deny your weakness, allow Me to bless you richly through it.

ISAIAH 42:3; ISAIAH 54:10; ROMANS 8:26

My next Instagram suggestion is Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. I cannot emphasize enough how much this book means to me. I cannot tell Y’all how much I NEED to scroll through IG and come upon my daily post from Jesus Calling. They’re short. To the point. IMPORTANT. Wonderful. Peaceful. Encouraging. If you don’t have any of the books I’ve talked about in the past, please consider following Sarah on Instagram.

[TLC and I had a super busy week beginning last Monday.. Little Leighton (aka LL) starts kindergarten this coming Wednesday! Public school. She and TLC attended a “Meet the Teachers” night last Thursday and both are TRES excited about her teacher. She seems positively lovely.

My Sweet Hubby (aka MSH) and I kept Baby Elle (aka Belle) for a night while TLC and LL had two days of “Mom and Only Me Time!” My niece, JP, came to spend the same night with us that Belle was here. That was FABULOUS. She then followed me to TLC’s casa for a short visit. She had to leave late that afternoon for her home. We were all grateful for the time she shared with us, her humor and kindness! She ROCKS.]

This weekend I’ve felt puny. Off a bit. Allergies? The weather? Just...well...pooped? I don't know. (We did get a teeny bit of rain. TLC—and others—got much more than us. Dadgummit. But it’s been cloudy and humid since mid-week!) I did some work around the house yesterday and this afternoon. Waited for a call for two days about a “showing” to prospective buyers (which never happened…UGH…). Did errands with MSH in Fort Worth today—once  we knew for certain there’d be no showing.

Jesus. During all of my minutes, hours, days, and nights this past week, I’ve needed Jesus.

May each of you have a Wonderful Week—wherever in this World Y’all are! And may you find Jesus if you haven’t yet. May My Sweet Jesus fill you with His peace, comfort, strength, patience, and, most of all, His unconditional love!

Hugs,

ELC
