"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

I totally get what the author says here! Not an easy task, but truly is the solution. Especially with what I will have to face on Monday. Which I will share about in tomorrows post:


I waste a lot of time worrying about storms I can see forming along the horizon of my life. Thankfully, many of them in the past have veered off in another direction; never reaching me. Some storms have actually hit, but usually they've lost much of their power by the time they get to me. I need to switch my focus from difficulties that may come my way to Your Presence, which is always with me.


You will never find security by trying to anticipate all the storms that may reach you someday. Remember that I control the atmosphere of your life. Trust Me by relaxing and releasing your concerns into My capable care. It saddens Me to see you obsessing about possible problems, rather than bringing these matters to Me. When you find yourself anxiously scanning the horizon of your life, use that as a reminder to seek My face. You will not find Me off in the distance. I am here beside you, nearer than you dare believe.

Instead of wasting time worrying, devote that time to developing close friendship with Me. Talk with Me about everything that concerns you-your pleasures as well as your problems. I am interested in everything that matters to you, because I am your perpetual Lover. Ask Me to lift your perspective from a problem focus to a Presence focus. Remember that I am holding you by your right hand. I guide you with My own counsel, based on eternal wisdom; so there's no need to worry about the future. When the time comes, I will personally escort you into Glory.

It is good for you to be near Me. Your best refuge in life's storms is close friendship with Me. (Sarah Young)


  1. Very nice post.

    Love to you.

  2. Encouraging post, JBR. We can waste so much time anticipating and dreading the arrival of storms, which as you said, often do not even come.
    And amen, a close friendship with Jesus is the best refuge.
    God bless

  3. He will be your shelter in the storm, and your shelter from the storm.

  4. JBR you are learning life's lesson at a young age.....I love how you are thinking here especially knowing not to worry about what may come, just be prepared with God's word and you my dear one will do just fine....:-) Hugs

  5. Oh Hallelujah!! This is so awesome, JBR! Amen, Amen!

  6. Reminds me of the old saying "I have crossed many bridges that I never came to"... we can save ourselves so much time and worry if we just go to Him right away instead of trying to figure it out alone. You're on the right path here JBR!
