Come to Me for rest

Mark handed this devotional book out at the last Youth meeting I was at. Written by Sarah Young and written in the first person singular...I, Me, Mine always refers to Christ...you, refers to you the reader. So the perspective is that of Jesus speaking to you. She also said that "the Bible is, of course, the only inerrant Word of God; my writings must be consistent with that unchanging standard." From "Jesus Calling" written by Sarah Young, the entry for February 7th...

Come to Me for rest and refreshment. The journey has been too much for you, and you are bone-weary. Do not be ashamed of your exhaustion. Instead, see it as an opportunity for Me to take charge of your life.

Remember that I can fit everything into a pattern for good, including the things you wish were different. Start with where you are at this point in time and space, accepting that this is where I intend you to be. You will get through today one step, one moment, at a time. Your main responsibility is to remain attentive to Me, letting Me guide you through the many choices along your pathway.

This sounds like an easy assignment, but it is not. Your desire to live in My Presence goes against the grain of "the world, the flesh, and the devil." Much of your weariness results from your constant battle against these opponents. However, you are on the path of My choosing, so do not give up! Hope in Me, for you will again praise Me for the help of My Presence.
