Jesus Calling

This is the name of the devotional book I read. Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.  I was given this by a wonderful Friend Shannon. She thought I would enjoy it and I so, do very much!

On days I am feeling frustrated or discouraged the devotional for that day always seems to match up. I thought I would share two of the devotionals that I read on days I was frustrated about not finding a homestead for us.

             " Stop Trying to work things out before their times have come. Accept the limitations of living one day at a time. When something comes to your attention, ask Me whether or not it is part of today's agenda. If it isn't, release it into My care and go on about today's duties. When you follow this practice, there will be a beautiful  simplicity about your life: a time for everything and everthing in its time. A life lived close to Me is not complicated or cluttered. When your focus is on My Presence, many things that once troubled you lose their power over you. Thought the world around you is messy and confusing, remember that I have overcome the world. I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have Peace."

           " I am taking care of you. Trust me at all times. Trust Me in all circumstances. Trust Me with all your heart. When you are weary and everything seems to be going wrong, you can still uttter these four words: "I Trust You , Jesus." By doing so , you release matters into My control, and you fall back into security of My everlasting arms. Before you arise from your bed in the morning, I have already arranged the events of your day. Every day provides opportunities for you to learn My ways and grow closer to Me. Signs of My Presence brighten even the dullest day when you have eyes that really see. Search for Me as for hidden treasure. I will be found by you. "

Those were some words I really needed to hear the other days. I hope maybe these helped you today , to remember God has it all worked out, just ask for His help and He will take it from there.  Have a wonderful day!

Happy Homesteading!
