I would like to share today’s words of Jesus by Sarah Young:

September 13

COME TO ME AND REST. Give your mind a break from its habitual judging. You form judgments about this situation, that situation, this person, that person, yourself, even the weather ― as if judging were your main function in life. But I created you first and foremost to know Me and to live in rich communion with Me. When you become preoccupied with passing judgment, you usurp My role.
Relate to Me as creature to Creator, sheep to Shepherd, subject to King, clay to Potter. Allow Me to have My way in your life. Rather than evaluating My ways with you, accept them thankfully. The intimacy I offer you is not an invitation to act as if you were My equal. Worship Me as King of kings, while walking hand in hand with Me down the path of Life.

   ”Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” ー Matthew7:1

   ”Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true
   God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” ー John 17:3

   But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say
   to him who formed it, “Why did you make me like that?” Does not the
   potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery
   for noble purposes and some for common use? ー Romans 9:20-21

   Which God will bring about in his own time ー God, the blessed and
   only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords. ー 1Timothy 6:15
