Jesus Calling – 10/5/2010

Gentlemen,

In light of the fact that there are many difficult circumstances swirling around our lives, today’s selection from “Jesus Calling,” by Sarah Young, is especially appropriate and encouraging.

“Remember that Joy is not dependent on your circumstances.  Some of the world’s most miserable people are those whose circumstances seem the most enviable.  People who reach the top of the ladder career-wise are often surprised to find emptiness awaiting them.  True Joy is a by-product of living in My Presence. Therefore, you can experience it in palaces, in prisons … anywhere.

“Do not judge a day as devoid of Joy just because it contains difficulties.  Instead, concentrate on staying in communication with Me.  Many of the problems that clamor for your attention will resolve themselves.  Other matters you must deal with, but I will help you with them.  If you make problem-solving secondary to the goal of living close to Me, you can find Joy even in your most difficult days.” (bold for emphasis)
