The World is Too Much: Jesus Calling

From my second favorite book, "Jesus Calling":

May 25

"THE WORLD IS TOO MUCH WITH YOU, My child.  Your mind leaps from problem to problem to problem, tangling your thoughts in anxious knots.  When  you think like that, you leave Me out of your worldview and your mind becomes darkened.  Though I yearn to help, I will not violate your freedom.  I stand silently in the background of your mind, waiting for you to remember that I am with you.  

When you turn from your problems to My Presence, your load is immediately lighter.  Circumstances may not have changed, but we carry your burdens together.  Your compulsion to "fix" everything gives way to deep, satisfying connection with Me.  Together we can handle whatever this day brings. 

Isaiah 41:10, Zephaniah 3:17, Psalm 34:19
