Today's Jesus Calling Devotional

Many of my Taylor girlfriends on our last trip together were reading the book Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.  Since then, I have also started and found it so simple yet so powerful in my own life.  Today's spoke so to me that I wanted to share it with those of you who don't have it yourselves:

Be willing to go out on a limb with Me.  If that is where I am leading you, it is the safest place to be.  Your desire to live a risk-free life is a form of unbelief.  Your longing to live close to Me is at odds with your attempts to minimize risk.  You are approaching a crossroads in your journey.  In order to follow Me wholeheartedly, you must relinquish your tendency to play it safe.

Let Me lead you step by step through this day.  If your primary focus is on Me, you can walk along perilous paths without being afraid.  Eventually, you will learn to relax and enjoy the adventure of our journey together.  As long as you stay close to Me, My sovereign Presence protects you wherever you go. 

What outlandish, scary dream has God put on your heart?
Seek Him, and then...
