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
