JESUS HAS THE ANSWER
When you’re stressed, it’s as though you’re in a kind of fun house…surrounded by distractions and distortions of every kind. You’re dazzled and confused by what you see and hear—both inside and outside your mind. When you’re in this state, you can’t hear or feel My quiet, joyous presence within, and so you reach outside yourself for some form of arbitrary comfort. This worldly soothing makes you feel better for a minute—or 10—but then leaves you feeling emptier than before. So you reach for another distraction and you continue riding the worldly merry-go-round that leads…nowhere.
I ask you to get off that ride and take My hand and walk with Me toward the heart of your Father’s Kingdom. You can break the distraction cycle before it starts by checking in with Me for five minutes first thing in the morning and/or just before bed. By dedicating just a few minutes to Me, you’ll realign yourself with My peace, My love, My joy. You’ll learn to hear My voice and know My presence within you so well, you will be able to find Me even when you’re caught up in a stressful situation.
Do you have a few minutes now to send Me a wave of love? Relax and enjoy the peace the Holy Spirit brings you. The joyous feeling you feel is Me in you. Make a note of that quality of joy so you can reach for Me in your most frantic times. I am always just a heartbeat away.
“As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.”
