From Frazzled to Freed

Jesus Calling - 365 Day Perpetual Calendar

So I have this calendar that offers a daily quote from the book, Jesus Calling. And I read something this week I thought I would share with you. As a recovering worriholic (I think I may have just made up that word…), it really spoke to me.

“Learn to enjoy life more. Relax, remembering that I am God with you…The more you focus on My presence with you, the more fully you can enjoy life. Glorify Me through your pleasure in Me. Thus you proclaim My presence to the watching world.”

I started off this week frazzled, overwhelmed by life, people, circumstances. But as I have turned my gaze back to God, I can say I am ending the week at peace. Knowing He is with me, that He is in control, frees me from unseen chains and helps me to enjoy the life He has given me.

What about you? Are you living frazzled instead of freed? Do you feel alone?

Focus on God’s presence, seek Him in His word, take pleasure in the gifts He has given you. Remember that The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” Psalm 145:18

“You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.” 
Isaiah 26:3

  1. I’m not frazzled exactly but I’m disoriented. I can’t seem to focus on a single thing. I guess I’ll make up a word: decomminded. That doesn’t mean I’m decorating minded. It means that my mind is racing in ten directions.

    Your post pricks me and shows me that the problem is that I’m called to have one focus and one focus only.

  2. 🙂 I loved this post! Exactly what I needed…. I, too, worry entirely too much. Thanks for sharing & for the sweet comment on my blog! Have a great weekend…
