Take a Breath and Then the Next Step

whirlwindHectic days.  Chaos all around and within.  Coming to Christ but the whirlwind of life seems to rip the words off of your lips before you can even hear them yourself.

Days like this are not fun and are overwhelming to say the least.  It is on days like this that I believe Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling entry for August 6 can be helpful:

When things seem to be going all wrong, stop and affirm your trust in Me. Calmly bring these matters to Me, and leave them in My capable hands.  Then, simply do the next thing.  Stay in touch with Me through thankful, trusting prayers, resting in My sovereign control.  Rejoice in Me – exult in the God of your salvation! As you trust in Me, I make your feet like the feet of a deer, I enable you to walk and make progress upon  your high places of trouble, suffering, or responsibility.
