Daily in Your Presence - June 12


Day 164


Jesus replied,
"Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests,
but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
Matthew 8:20

My child, sometimes your wants far exceed your needs. Things will never satisfy the depths of your soul. Only I can do that. Your heart yearns for simplicity, yet you do not always understand. Enjoy the things with which I have blessed you, but realize again only one thing is needful. Treasure our relationship. Let it influence every other relationship here on earth, and every decision or commitment you make. True simplicity is found as you seek after My heart.

You had no home to call Your own, no place to lay Your head, no savings accounts, and no fancy wardrobes. If the Son of God could live in simplicity, why can't I?  Truly You've shown that simple things are best: treasures of the heart that can never be measured monetarily but are remembered eternally.


Simplicity is not a "fad-i-tude," but an attitude of the heart.
