Jesus Calling – Sarah Young – entire entry because it is THAT important a message (emphasis mine)
Rejoice in Me always! No matter what is going on, you can rejoice in your Love-relationship with Me. This is the secret of being content in all circumstances. So many people dream of the day when they will finally be happy: when they are out of debt, when their children are out of trouble, when they have more leisure time, and so on. While they daydream, their moments are trickling into the ground like precious balm spilling wastefully from overturned bottles.
Fantasizing about future happiness will never bring fulfillment, because fantasy is unreality. Even though I am invisible, I am far more Real than the world you see around you. My reality is eternal and unchanging. Bring your moments to Me and I will fill them with vibrant Joy. Now is the time to receive My Presence
Praying God’s Word Day-by-Day – Beth Moore (emphasis mine)
I wait for You, Lord. My soul waits, and in Your Word I put my hope. My soul waits foe You, Lord, more than watchmen wait for the morning. With You, Lord is unfailing love and with You is full redemption. You Yourself will redeem me from all my sins (Psalm 130:3-8).
