"Relax, and let Me lead you."

Below is today's excerpt from the devotion Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence.  I don't know about you, but this is exactly what I needed to hear this morning.  I hope you may find the same peace I did in the words below. 

"Relax and let Me lead you through this day.  I have everything under control: My control.  You tend to peer anxiously into the day that is before you, trying to figure out what to do , and when...  All that planning ties you up in knots and distracts you from Me.  Attentiveness to Me is not only for your quiet time, but for all your time.  As you look to Me, I will show you what to do now and next.

Vast quantities of time and energy are wasted in obsessive planning.  When you let Me direct your steps, you are set free to enjoy Me and find what I have prepared for you this day."


  1. Oh my gosh... you have no idea how much this applies to me lately. I had a nice cry session Sunday night about all the stress and things going on with wedding planning, work, etc. This was great to read...thank you so much for sharing!

  2. What a wonderful post! I get so wrapped up in the planning that by the time the event occurs, I don't think I really appreciate it. Advice to take with me over the next few months for sure!
