So yesterday this was my devotional in the book, Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young, which is a phenomenal one if you don't have one - you should seriously consider this one...

"Learn to laugh at yourself more freely. Don't take yourself or your circumstances so seriously. Relax and know that I am God with you. When you desire My will above all else, life becomes much less threatening. Stop trying to monitor My responsibilities--things that are beyond your control. Find freedom by accepting the boundaries of your domain.

Laughter lightens your load and lifts your heart into heavenly places. Your laughter rises to heaven and blends with angelic melodies of praise. Just as parents delight in the laughter of their children, so I delight in hearing My children laugh. I rejoice when you trust Me enough to enjoy your life lightheartedly.

Do not miss the Joy of My Presence by carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Rather, take My yoke upon you and learn from Me. My yoke is comfortable and pleasant; My burden is light and easily borne."

I just loved this & it really hit me because lately I've been taking things going on in my life and decisions to be made way too seriously. However, it's not mine to take seriously. This was just a good reminder that day by day in His Presence is the only place I can be, and I am very thankful for that- what a relief that our plans don't matter. He sets the pace in keeping with my needs and HIS PURPOSE.

"She is clothed in strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."
{Proverbs 31:25}
