Wednesday In The Word-Look to HIM

Though I have shared with you all about my devotional book called "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young before I just had to share today's devotional. God has truly used this little book to give me just what I need. I pray it speaks to your heart today.


Stay calmly conscious of Me today no matter what. Remember that I go before you as well as with you into the day. NOTHING takes Me by surprise. I will NOT allow your circumstances to overwhelm you, SO LONG AS YOU LOOK TO ME. I will help you cope with whatever the moment presents. Collaborating with Me brings blessings that far outweigh all your troubles. Awareness of My presence contains Joy that can endure all eventualties.

The part of this devotional that jumped off of the page at me was SO LONG AS YOU LOOK TO ME! When our eyes are not on Jesus we are lost! We are lost in thoughts, actions, and words. For me personally, I tend to let the "little" things in life take on a big meaning and I become overwhelmed. Thank you Lord for this reminder today that AS LONG AS I LOOK TO YOU that I can rest knowing YOU'VE got me covered with peace. 

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. Glad you highlighted this part "We are lost in thoughts, actions, and words"....cause I needed to read it again. I have a tendency to focus on those things, too, as my blog today stated!! God is so good...HE needs my entire focus! Love you, sweet friend!

  6. Oh! I LOVE this devotional - I use it as an app on my phone - so it is ever handy - and I have the book by my "secret place" chair. The Lord always blesses me in sucha specific way! Blessings on our Sarah Young for being so obedient to hear His voice and share the fruit of her walk in such a personal way. Do stop back at my place - just posted my teatime - recipe, too!
    Joy!

  7. Wonderful devotion Cindy, isn't it something how we tend to stumble of the little things? That's because we don't keep our eyes on The Leader. Have a blessed week!

  8. Stay calm... look to Me... blessings. It is amazing how these simple ideas are so full of truth. Unfortunately, I try to do everything myself and do not have peace and am probably missing out on God's blessings. Thanks for reminding me to look to JESUS in everything!

    My daughter loves this devotional. She uses it as a basis for a small group she leads.
