Please allow me to share with you a passage from Jesus Calling: Seeking Peace in God’s Presence written by Sarah Young. It is with this book and a cup of coffee that I begin each day. The author writes the devotional as if Jesus was talking directly to you and closes with a collection of scriptures from the Bible, sharing God’s promises on the pertaining subject.. Here is the beginning of today’s offering:
Sound familiar? The crazy part is that with God’s help I have experienced that precious peace when letting go of quite the list of things in my life. How strange that in some situations the comfort of the familiar keeps us trapped in self-imposed misery. No more!
My hand is now grasping the nail-scarred hand of Jesus where He will lead me to more productive pursuits for His Kingdom’s glory. The “it” of my former grasp is no longer my cause to champion. “It” is in God’s hands where it should have been all along. Praise the Lord! I had only served to make a mess of “it” as “it” had made a mess of me. Let go of your “it” and interlace you fingers with His in openness and trust! Let’s do this together and enjoy the life and peace promised us in His presence. Seek His Face! To God Be the Glory!
