"In order to hear My voice, you must release all your worries into My care. Entrust to Me everything that concerns you. This clears the way for you to seek My Face unhindered... allowing My Light to soak into you and drive out any darkness lodged within you...thank Me and rest in My sovereignty." (294)
Several friends reflected on this powerful truth in their own lives. Kay said it helped her go through her "day rejoicing and not worrying!" We know that joy and worry come from different parts of our brain. Living in joy refuels us. Worry drains us.
Melissa shared how taking time, "everyday to clear (her) mind of the day's events and focus only on God" has made such a helpful impact on her daily life.
Another friend said it reminded her of the folks in the Claritin commercial...before God our thoughts are fuzzy and out of focus, however, after God our thoughts are clear! She said, "I definitely prefer the clear over the fuzzy!"
To hear His Voice, to seek His Face, to soak in His Presence, to rest in His Sovereignty... what a blessed way to live! What a healthy way to live! Hearing, seeking, soaking and resting... That's on my agenda for today...no matter how full my day becomes!
