I took a breath, closed my office door for a minute, pulled out my trusty friend, "Jesus Calling" and read today's Word. It's as if it were written just for me:
"People tend to think their circumstances determine the quality of their lives. So they pour their energy into trying to control those situations. Thy feel happy when things are going well, and sad or frustrated when things don't turn out as they had hoped. They rarely question this correlation between circumstances and feelings. Yet it is possible to be content in any and every situation."
Then the next part, "Put more energy into trusting Me and enjoying My Presence. Don't let your well-being depend on your circumstances. Instead, connect your joy to My precious promises: I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go. I will meet all your needs according to My glorious riches. Nothing in all creation will be able to separate you from My Love."
A Word of encouragement when I needed it. Thank you, God for the encouragement and Sarah Young, for being His instrument.
