"You will seek Me and find Me,
when you seek Me above all else"
Every morning I reach for my Jesus Calling book. The night before I place it on my desk chair, right next to my bed so that first thing in the morning it is what I see and reach for. Even though I have done my best to place it first, I recognize it isn't quite my first urge.
It use to be that my first urge would be to check my phone, but lately, I've found that my first indulgence has become my thoughts which reflect on all the events -"good" and "not good"- and I feel myself fill with God's grace and love and I give him thanks.
Then I reach for Jesus Calling and I am able to enter into my practice with a whole different mindset.
