A daily writing from my flip calendar written by Sarah Young titled "JESUS CALLING: Enjoying Peace in His Presence". Young's writings are taken from various Bible verses and written as if Jesus is talking to each reader, from January 13:
"Try to view each day as an adventure, carefully planned out by your Guide. Instead of staring into the day that is ahead of you, attempting to program it according to your will, be attentive to Me and to all I have prepared for you. Thank Me for this day of life, recognizing that it is a precious, unrepeatable gift. Trust that I am with you each moment, whether you sense My Presence or hot. A thankful, trusting attitude helps you to see events in your life from My perspective.
"A life lived close to Me will never be dull or predictable. Expect each day to contain surprises! Resist your tendency to search for the easiest route through the day. Be willing to follow wherever I lead. No matter how steep or treacherous the path before you, the safest place to be is by My side."
Psalm 118:24; Peter 2:21
