Are you afraid, overwhelmed, depressed or lonely?

Today’s wisdom is from the devotional book, Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young.

 Jesus says:

I am with you and for you, your constant companion and provider.  The question is whether you are with me and for me.  Though I never leave you, you can essentially “leave” me by ignoring me:  thinking or acting as If I am not with you.

When you feel distance in our relationship, you know where the problem lies.  My love for you is constant.  It is you who change like shifting sand, letting circumstances toss you this way and that.

When you feel far from me, whisper my name.  This simple act, done in childlike faith, opens your heart to my presence.  Speak to me in love-tones; prepare to receive my Love which flows eternally from the cross.  I am delighted when you open yourself to my loving presence.

When you are afraid, overwhelmed, depressed or lonely, just whisper:  “Jesus.
