Encouragement for All Believers

I just got onto the Ordinary Hero blog and ran across this excerpt from a devotional that Kelly is doing.  I hope it encourages you like it encouraged me!

Stop trying to work things out before their times have come. Accept the limitations of living one day at a time. When something comes to your attention, ask Me whether or not it is part of today's agenda. If it isn't, release it into My care and go on about today's duties. When you follow this practice, there will be a beautiful simplicity about your life: a time for everything and everything in its time. 
A life lived close to Me is not complicated or cluttered. When your focus is on My Presence, many things that once troubled you lose their power over you. Though the world around you is messy and confusing, remember that I have overcome the world. I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. 
(Eccl 3:1, John 16:33)

  1. I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

    John 16:33 is quickly becoming one of my favorites! I am taking heart! :-) Thanks for the reminder. :) Ami
