Problems… We’ve all got ’em

I want to share this devotion from Jesus Calling with you. This really resonated with me because of the season I am in and I feel it will resonate with some of you as well.


“Approach problems with a light touch. When your mind moves toward a problem area, you tend to focus on that situation so intensely that you lose sight of Me. You pit yourself against the difficulty as if you had to conquer it immediately. Your mind gears up for battle, and your body becomes tense and anxious. Unless you achieve total victory, you feel defeated.

“There is a better way. When a problem starts to overshadow your thoughts, bring this matter to Me. Talk with Me about it and look at it in the Light of My Presence. This puts some much-needed space between you and your concern, enabling you to see from My perspective. You will be surprised at the results. Sometimes you may even laugh at yourself for being so serious about something so insignificant.

“You will always face trouble in this life. But more importantly you will always have Me with you, helping you to handle whatever you encounter. Approach problems with a light touch by viewing them in My revealing Light.”


“Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O Lord.” Psalm 89:15


“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



(Jesus Calling November 15)


Spend time with Jesus. Bask in his presence and allow him to take your burdens and your problems. They are not yours yo carry.
