Dear Jesus

When you spend time with Me, I restore your sense of direction. I enable you to do less but accomplish more.

Dear Jesus,
                 
This is good news indeed! What You are offering is just what I need. There are so many possible ways to go through each day that I easily lose my sense of direction. When this happens, I tend to go around in circles: interrupting one task to do something else, while my thoughts flit from one thing to the next. At such times my body simply cannot keep up with the pace of my mind, and I become increasingly confused—accomplishing little. I know my time and energy are precious gifts from You, Lord. Help me use them wisely.

Beloved, when you realize you have lost your way, there is only one remedy: Stop, and reconnect with Me—the Director of your life. Admit that you are directionless, and ask for My help. Pause with Me, while I soothe your frazzled nerves. Let the peacefulness of My Presence revive you. As My Peace settles over your mind and soul, the way before you will open up step by step. Though you cannot see very far ahead of you, you can see enough to continue your journey. Try to remain conscious of Me as you go, remembering that I am with you every bit of the way.

You may think this delay is a waste of time, but it is not. When you follow My directions closely, you save great quantities of time and energy: You avoid doing worthless works—things that are not in My plan for you. This frees you to do the genuine works I prepared in advance for you. Thus, though you do less in terms of actual activity, you accomplish much more. 

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
~ Proverbs 16:3 

The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” 
~ Exodus 33:14

Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
~ Psalm 119:35 

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. 
~ Ephesians 2:10
