My devotions for the last couple of days have been particularly poignant. One of my devotional resources is 'Jesus Calling' by Sarah Young (which I would highly recommend to everyone).
One line out of the October 17 devo is probing my inner life. 'Anxiety is a result of envisioning the future without (God). My challenge is: when I dwell on the 'what ifs' of my life, I quickly lose my spiritual perspective.
The second line is from today's, October 18th. 'If you focus on the obstacle or search for a way around it, you will probably go off course.' Taking my eyes off of Jesus, even for only a few moments can be spiritually dangerous. Jesus said, 'Seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness and all these other things will be taken care of. What a great reminder and challenge for our walk with Jesus and each other. Let's keep our eyes on Him.
