Fresh on Friday ~ Encouragement

Sharing from Jesus Calling today, by Sarah Young.
As I read this yesterday it really encouraged me and I know many need this gentle reminder.
I encourage you today to trust!

I, The Creator of The Universe,
am with you and for you. What more could you need?
  When you feel some lack, it is because you are not connecting with Me at a deep level. 
 I offer abundant Life; your part is to trust Me, refusing to worry about anything.

It is not so much adverse events that make you anxious as it is your thoughts about those events.
Your mind engages in efforts to take control of a situation, to bring about the result you desire.
Your thoughts close in on the problem like ravenous wolves. Determined to make things go your way, you forget that I am in charge of your life. The only remedy is to switch your focus from the problem to My Presence.
Stop all your striving, and watch to see what I will do. I am the Lord!


But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God
my Savior; my God will hear me  .~Micah 7:7

Have a great weekend, trust!
Its what echos from my heart today.....


  1. Amen.

    I hope your shoulder is healing well now.

    Trust - yes, we need to do that.


  2. I need to get Jesus Calling - everything I've ever seen from there just touches my heart.

    1. It's the best in my opinion. I look forward to the read every morning, and the wonder after when I think, 'crazy how He knows just what I needed to hear."
      Its a favorite gift to someone in any type of struggle. Hugs!

  3. Looking for you, sweet Debi. Hope all is well!

  4. When you read Sarah's book, you can think to yourself that I am reading it too, and being blessed and encouraged by it too. I am catching up on reading blogs, and always feel blessed when I come here. I especially liked your "thankful" post too.
