I clicked on “Publish” a couple of hours ago on a post about my mind-bending thoughts on God, healing, and hurts. Imagine my delight when I plopped down on the couch this afternoon to read today’s entry for the devotional book Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. It’s written from the perspective of Jesus talking directly to us about our circumstances:
Keep your focus on Me. I have gifted you with amazing freedom, including the ability to choose the focal point of your mind. Only the crown of My creation has such remarkable capability; this is a sign of being made in My image.
Let the goal of this day be to bring every thought captive to Me. Whenever your mind wanders, lasso those thoughts and bring them into My Presence. In My radiant Light, anxious thoughts shrink and shrivel away. Judgmental thoughts are unmasked as you bask in My conditional Love. Confused ideas are untangled while you rest in simplicity of My Peace. I will guard you and keep you in constant Peace, as you focus your mind on Me.
