Dear 939 Friends,

In all this excitement and frantic pace though, I sort of lost my focus on God during the last few days. Many of you know I love my “Jesus Calling” devotional book. I typically read it every morning for a few minutes and really enjoy reflecting on the message. However, this week I couldn’t find my “Jesus Calling” book. The little book was somewhere buried under the clutter that had accumulated in my office. I hate to admit I had allowed Jesus to be buried again. I would look for it to no avail and then get so busy I wouldn’t look for it again until the next morning. Jesus kept calling, but the line was busy…….”Jenny Lynn…..I’m over here in the den…..if you’ll just stop long enough to listen to me……Jenny Lynn, slow your pace. Be still……..and you’ll find Me.”
When I finally found the “Jesus Calling” book, and read the message God had for me on Sept. 3 it was perfect. See an excerpt below:
Let the dew of My presence refresh your mind and heart. So many, many things vie for your attention in this complex world of instant communication. The world has changed enormously since I first gave the command to be still and know that I am God.
Blessings to you all being on this journey with me. Continue to pray for me that I don’t lose Jesus in the journey.
