Today’s message in Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

I wanted to share today’s page out of Sarah Young’s devotional book, “Jesus Calling”. I find today’s devotional especially powerful. It’s amazing how God speaks to us, exactly where we are. I haven’t looked at this devotional (I have several) in over a week. I felt drawn to read today’s message and wow! I wanted to share it. Hope you enjoy it! Also, if you haven’t checked out Sarah Young, I highly recommend that you do! Β She’s an amazing woman of God whose writings are full of anointing. I often times feel like Jesus is directly talking to me through her words and the timing is spot on. How great is our God! Β πŸ™‚

“March 9th

Rest in my radiant presence. The world around you seems to spin faster and faster, till everything is a blur. Yet there is a cushion of calm at the center of your life, where you live in union with Me. Return to this soothing Center as often as you can, for this is where you are energized: filled with My Love, Joy and Peace.

The world is a needy place; do not go there for sustenance. Instead come to Me. Learn to depend on Me alone, and your weakness will become saturated with My Power. When you find your completeness in Me, you can help other people without using them to meet your own needs. Live in the Light of My Presence, and your light will shine brightly into the lives of others.”

-all credit belongs to Sarah Young

Scriptures that follow:

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness.” – Galatians 5:22

“No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” Β – 1 John 4:12

———————————————————————————————————————————-

It is my prayer that I may learn to walk in love with friends, family, coworkers, strangers, and those who are difficult to love – the ones who have a lot of rejection or the world see as unloveable. 1 John 4:11, “Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”

In closing I thought I would share something that I have pinned next to my mirror. It’s written on a random piece of paper from over a year ago. At the time I didn’t fully believe the words but oh, I so wanted to. I’m not exactly sure where I got it from, I believe it wrote it down while listening to a particular broadcast on the radio my mom recommended. I treasure the things that I write on random pieces of paper the most. It’s believe it’s the most authentic expression of our heart cry. I’m happy to say that in a year’s time my belief has caught up to my longing. Christ is my everything. You can take away whatever you want, including my body, but nothing will touch what I carry inside. My love relationship with my Savior.

  • Christ is my significance
  • Christ is my self-worth
  • Christ is my security
  • Christ is my life

Dear Lord, Thank you for giving me life and all that I need to experience it fully! Teach me to always draw my life from you. Amen

 

You are loved!

-Bethany

  1. Thanks Bethany! I’m a teacher, and I get to my classroom early to spend some time in His Presence. I was googling for a Jesus Calling word, and your blog came up. Thank you for your words, they’re allowing God to frame my day with Peace, which is needed for all the tasks I need to do today. God bless!
