Relax Let Me Lead You

image

RELAX AND LET ME LEAD YOU through this day.  I have everything under control: My control.

You tend to peer anxiously into the day that is before you, trying to figure out what to do, and when.  Meanwhile, the phone or the doorbell rings, and you have to reshuffle your plans.  All that planning ties you up in knots and distracts you from Me.  Attentiveness to Me is not only for your quiet time, but for all your time.  As you look to Me , I show you what to do now and next.

 

Vast quantities of time and energy are wasted in obsessive planning.  When you let me direct your steps, you are set free to enjoy Me and to find what I have prepared for you this day. 

 

     I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.  Psalm 32:8

 

    Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.    Psalm 119:35

 

   Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You.  Show

me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul.   Psalm143:8

Thankfulness

THANKFULNESS OPENS THE DOOR  to My Presence.   Though I am always with you, I have gone to great measures to preserve your freedom of choice.  I have placed a door between you and Me, and I have empowered you to open or close that door.  These are many ways to open it, but a grateful attitude is one of the most effective.  There are many ways to open it, but a grateful attitude is one of the most effective.

Thankfulness is built on a substructure of trust.  When thankful words stick in your throat, you need to check up on your foundation of trust.  When thankfulness flows freely from your heart and lips, let your gratitude draw you closer to Me.  I want you to learn the art of giving thanks in all circumstances. See how many times you can thank Me daily; this will awaken your awareness to a multitude of blessings.  It will also cushion the impact of trials when they come against you.  Practice My Presence by practicing the discipline of thankfulness.

   Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His court with praise: give thanks to Him and praise His name.  Psalm 100:4

   Give thanks in all circumstances , for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.    1 Thessalonians5:18

I Am The Light Of The World

I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.  Men crawl through their lives cursing the darkness, but all the while I am shining brightly.  I desire each of My followers to be a Light-bearer.  The Holy Spirit who lives in you can shine from your face, making Me visible to people around you. Ask My Spirit to live through you, as you wend your way through this day.  Hold My hand in joyful trust, for I never leave your side.  The Light of My Presence is shining upon you.  Brighten up the world by reflecting who I AM.

    When Jesus spoke again to the people , he said, “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.     John 8:12

     “You are the light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden .  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on the its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”     Matthew 5:14

       And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory , are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing  glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.      2 Corinthians 3:18

     God said to Moses,  “I AM WHO I AM.  This is what you are to say to the Israelites:  ‘ I AM has sent me to you.'”

  Exodus 3:14

As You Listen

AS YOU LISTEN  to birds calling to one another, hear also My Love-call to you.  I speak to you continually: through sights , sounds, thoughts, impressions, scriptures.  There is no limit to the variety of ways I can communicate with you. Your part is to be attentive to My messages, in whatever form they come.  When you set out to find Me in a day, you discover that the world is vibrantly alive with My Presence.  You can find Me not only in beauty and bird calls, but also in tragedy and faces filled with grief.  I can take the deepest sorrow and weave it into a pattern for good.

Search for Me and My messages, as you go through this day.  You will seek ME and find ME when you seek Me with your whole being. 

   “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”   John10:27

   We are assured and know that ( God being a partner in their labor) all things work together and are  (fitting into a plan) for good to and for those who love God and are called according to  (His) design and purpose.  Romans8:28   

     “You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”    Jeremiah 29:13
