Jesus calling devotional…

words from my personal journal

(from my devotional journal, i use the Jesus calling devotional)

Dear Heavenly Father,
what a blessing to know we can come to Lord for rest and refreshment
I am thankful that we do not need to be ashamed of our exhaustion.
father help me see this time of emptiness, pain, discomfort, and loneliness as an opportunity to let you take back charge of my life
help pry my fingers off the plans i have for my life

Romans 8:28 reminds me that you work for the good of those who love you. we are part of your PERFECT plan.

all i have to do is love you
not understand
not figure you out
not be able to explain how and why
just love you
*thank you Lord*

we know that’s not in our flesh to seek you before ourselves
we get so caught up in how to fix, when to fix, why this is happening
that we lose sight of our magnificent creator

i hold tight to Psalm 42:11
Why am I so sad?
Why am I so upset?
I should put my hope in God
and keep praising him,
my Savior and my God.

it’s hard to see thru the fog of my self-control and sin
but you have our best interest in mind
we may not understand now
but one day you will reveal your plan to us
i look forward to live in my eternal home with you Lord
