The peace of Jesus

The peace of Jesus

A friend sent me this quote. I have reading it over and over. 

I love to plan. Excessive planning violates God’s goal for my life. Jesus challenges me to trust God, not my ability to plan.

“You will not find My Peace by engaging in excessive planning:  attempting to control what will happen to you in the future.  This is a commonly practiced form of unbelief.  When your mind spins with multiple plans, Peace may sometimes seem to be within your grasp; yet it always eludes you. Just when you think you have prepared for all possibilities, something unexpected pops up and throws things into confusion. 

I did not design the human mind to figure out the future.  That is beyond your capability.  I crafted your mind for continual communication with Me.  Bring Me all your needs your hopes and fears.  Commit everything into My care.  Turn from the path of planning to the path of Peace. ” ~~Sarah Young, Jesus Calling
