Peace in the Midst of a Storm

Do you ever just wake up feeling anxious because of all you have to do that day?  an appointment you are dreadig?  an unresolved problem?  or news you anticipate receiving that day?  Because of all of the above . . . plus knowing that I'll have sons on the road today . . . I woke up feeling anxious.  What a blessing these words were from Jesus Calling this morning!

Jesus Calling -- March 1st:

When something in your life or thoughts makes you anxious, come to Me and talk about it. Bring Me your prayer and petition with thanksgiving, saying: “Thank You, Jesus, for this opportunity to trust You more.” Though the lessons of trust that I send to you come wrapped in difficulties, the benefits far outweigh the cost.

Well-developed trust will bring you many blessings, not the least of which is My Peace. I have promised to keep you in perfect Peace to the extent that you trust in Me. The world has it backwards, teaching that peace is the result of having enough money, possessions, insurance, and security systems. My Peace, however, is such an all-encompassing gift that it is independent of all circumstances. Though you lose everything else, if you gain My Peace you are rich indeed.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.
—Philippians 4:6 NASB

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

—Isaiah 26:3

Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His  Presence - Devotions for Every Day of the Year

By Sarah Young / Thomas Nelson

After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior's voice and began listening for what He was saying. With pen in hand she embarked on a journey that forever changed her along with many others throughout the world. The result of these meditations is the classic devotional, Jesus Calling, Enjoying Peace in His Presence. In these powerful pages are the words and scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. A year's worth of daily readings from Young's journals are now available for you, in order to bring you closer to Christ and move you deeper into His presence and His everlasting peace.

Have you ordered your own Jesus Calling yet??  If you have an iPhone, may I recommend the Jesus Calling app??  I love mine!  :)
