Jesus Calling devotional

This was sent to me today by a friend and I believe it is worth sharing:

I thought this was a good message for those who are waiting.... its from the Jesus Calling devotional. The date is April13.

When I give you no special guidance, stay where you are. Concentrate on doing your everyday tasks in awareness of My Presence with you. The Joy of My Presence will shine on you, as you do everything for Me. Thus you invite Me into every aspect of your life. Through collaborating with Me in all things, you allow My Life to merge with yours. This is the secret not only of joyful living but also of victorious living. I designed you to depend on Me moment by moment, recognizing that apart from Me you can do nothing.

Be thankful for quiet days, when nothing special seems to be happening. Instead of being bored by the lack of action, use times of routine to seek My Face. Although this is an invisible transaction, it speaks volumes in spiritual realms. Moreover, you are richly blessed when you walk trustingly with Me through the routines of your day.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.—Colossians 3:23

"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”—John 15:5

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.—Psalm 105:4

I don't personally have the Jesus Calling devotional book, but I have read numerous devotionals out of the book and they are powerful. Everyone I know who reads these devotions are impacted by them. If you're looking for a devotional to start or end your day with the Lord, this would be a wise choice. There is a Kindle version, Nook version and an app for the iPhone/iPad. Let me know if you read it or if you decide to buy it! Be blessed friends by these words of truth.
