When Quiet Beckons

Allow the invitation below to shape the pace and direction of what lies before you today. The following excerpt is taken from Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young. Emphasis is mine.

From July 17, Sarah writes,

Come away with Me for a while. The world, with its nonstop demands, can be put on hold. Most people put Me on hold, rationalizing that someday they will find time to focus on Me. But the longer people push Me into the background of their lives, the harder it is for them to find Me. You live among people who glorify busyness; they have made time a tyrant that controls their lives. Even those who know Me as Savior tend to march to the tempo of the world. They have bought into the illusion that more is always better: more meetings, more programs, more activity.

I have called you to follow Me on a solitary path, making time alone with Me your highest priority and deepest Joy. It is a pathway largely unappreciated and often despised. However, you have chosen the better thing, which will never be taken away from you. Moreover, as you walk close to Me, I can bless others through you.

Song of Songs 2:13; Luke 10:42

First time here?

  1. Powerful. As I await results from a test, I have been given the choice….stew, wait, or pause, trusting God’s timing. I call. Results not back….wait until Friday. Ok. So what now? Pause. Add Jesus to my day and receive His peace, His marching orders, His attention.
