Thoughtful Thursday-Jesus Calling Devotional #1

I was given this devotion by a dear friend of mine and I absolutely love it! I try to imagine Jesus sitting in front of me, saying these words to me and it gives me strength and hope for my day.  Such a great way to start the day!

"Seek My face more and more. You are really just beginning your journey of intimacy with Me. It is not an easy road, but it is a delightful and privileged way: a treasure hunt. I am the Treasure, and the Glory of My presence glistens and shimmers along the way. Hardships are part of the journey too. I measure them out ever so carefully, in just the right measure, with tenderness you can hardly imagine. Do not recoil from afflictions, since they are among My most favored gifts. Trust Me and don't be afraid, for I am your Strength and Song."

Further reading: Psalm 27:8, 2 Cor. 4:7, Isaiah 12:2
