This morning I was reading from the book, “Jesus Calling” and I happened upon the following meditative piece. It was a good reminder about our busyness and the divine disconnect that happens when we don’t stop, pause and reflect. Have a great Sunday, Monty


I Am training you in steadiness.
Too many things interrupt your awareness of Me.
I know that you live in a world of sight and sound,
but you must not be a slave to those stimuli.
Awareness of Me can continue in all circumstances,
no matter what happens.
This is the steadiness I desire for you.

Don’t let unexpected events throw you off course.
Rather, respond calmly and confidently,
remembering that I Am with you.
As soon as something grabs your attention,
talk with Me about it.
Thus, I share your joys and your problems;
I help you cope with whatever is before you.
This is how I live in you and work through you.
This is the way of peace.


They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
Psalm 112:7

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10


  1. Monty…great post…thanks for sharing. Mo and I are going out to NYC to the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Conference the first of May…any chance you are going too? We are so looking forward to what God has for us through the Scazzero’s. We are attending the marriage conference too.
