This devo was so profound to me this morning – spoke to just my own situation.  Thought maybe you would be blessed too.  From my Jesus Calling.

“Approach problems with a light touch.  When your mind moves toward a problem area, you tend to focus on that situation so intensely that you lose sight of Me.  You pit yourself against the difficulty as if you had to conquer it immediately.  Your mind gears up for battle, and your body becomes tense and anxious.  Unless you achieve total victory, you feel defeated.

There is a better way.  When a problem starts to overshadow your thoughts, bring this matter to Me.  Talk with Me about it and look at it in the Light of My Presence.  This puts some much-needed space between you and your concern, enabling you to see from My perspective.  You will be surprised at the results.  Sometimes you may even laugh at yourself for being so serious about something so insignificant.

You will always face trouble in this life.  But more importantly, you will always have Me with you, helping you to handle whatever you encounter.  Approach problems with a light touch by viewing them in My revealing Light.”

” Blessed are the people who know the passwords of praise,
who shout on parade in the bright presence of God.” Psalm 89:15 the message

“In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” John 16:33 the message

Have a victorious week!
