Sarah Young, the author of Jesus Calling,

has these wise words for us,

from the standpoint of the Lord speaking to us:



 Try saying, “I trust You, Jesus,” in response to whatever happens to you.

 If there is time, think about who I AM in all my Power and Glory:

ponder also the depth and breadth of My Love for you.

This simple practice will help you see Me in every situation,

acknowledging My sovereign control over the universe.

 When you view events from this perspective –

through the Light of My universal Presence –

fear loses its grip on you.

 Adverse circumstances become growth opportunities

when you affirm your trust in Me no matter what.

 You receive blessings gratefully,

realizing they flow directly from My hand of grace.

 Your continual assertion of trusting Me will strengthen our relationship

and keep you close to me.



Psalm 63:2

 To see thy power and thy glory,

so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.




Isaiah 40:10-11

 Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand,

and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him,

and his work before him.

He shall feed his flock like a shepherd:

he shall gather the lambs with his arm,

and carry them in his bosom,

and shall gently lead those that are with young.






Psalm 139:7-10

Whither shall I go from thy spirit?

or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:

if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

 If I take the wings of the morning,

and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

 Even there shall thy hand lead me,

and thy right hand shall hold me.



This is the time of year when people

make New Year’s Resolutions;

or else dust off the ones from last year.

 Sarah has suggested a good habit

or resolution we can adopt for life.




Let’s get acquainted; I’d love to hear from you.

You may want to share a personal experience about trusting the Lord.
