Jesus Calling

My previous post needs an important postnote. 

That very evening this was the reading from Jesus Calling (by Sarah Young), a daily devotional given to me by my godson. 

March 26

Waiting on Me means directing your attention to Me in hopeful anticipation of what I will do.  It entails trusting Me with every fiber of your being, instead of trying to figure things out yourself.  Waiting on Me is the way I designed you to live: all day, every day.  I created you to stay conscious of Me as you go about your daily duties.

I have promised many blessings to those who wait on Me: renewed strength, living above one's circumstances, resurgence of hope, awareness of My continual Presence.  Waiting on Me enables you to glorify Me by living in deep dependence on Me, ready to do My will.  It also helps you to enjoy Me; in My Presence is fullness of Joy.

Lamentations 3:24-26; Isaiah 40:31; Psalm 16:11 (NKJV)

It's no coincidence that these words mirrored my friend's on the very same day.  I truly felt Jesus Calling, wrapping His arms around me with reassurance, love and answered prayers.
