Happy Friday All!!!
WHEN THINGS ARE NOT GOING YOUR WAY, refuse to get flustered.
Stop what you're doing and take some deep breaths.
Seek My Face—spend a few moments enjoying My Presence.
Tell Me about the matters that are frustrating you.
I will help you see things from My perspective and sort out what is really important.
Moreover, I will open up the way before you as you press on in trusting dependence, remaining in communication with Me.
Your desire to feel in control is often the culprit behind your frustration.
You plan your day and expect others to behave in ways that expedite your plans.
When that doesn't happen, you face a choice: to resent the situation or to Trust Me.
Remember that I am in control and My ways are higher than yours—as the heavens are higher than the earth.
Instead of getting agitated about setbacks to your schedule, use them as reminders:
I am your Savior-God, and you are My beloved follower.
Relax in My sovereign control, trusting in My unfailing Love.
From " Jesus Always" by Sarah Young
"When You said, "Seek My face," my heart said to You, "Your face, LORD, I will seek."
—PSALM 27:8 NKJV
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts."
—ISAIAH 55:9 NKJV
"Why are you so downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God."
"But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation."
