PULL HIM CLOSER
I'm someone who prays often, and often in between. My conversations with God are much like my conversations with my husband or my kids, they are either rather directed and to the point because what I say needs to be clarified or I ....Well, I babble. My relationship with God is much like my relationship with my family - there are times when I want to pull him in and oh so close and there are times when I'm neglectful and realize I've allowed myself to be too busy or too pre occupied with me or stuff.
I truly believe we are only as close to God as we chose to be. There are times when I am prayerful that He will fill me, fill me, fill me and I am consumed by Him. I seek Him out in all situations and opportunities. And there are times when I am prayerful he fill me and I don't respond, I get side tracked, I neglect him. Our relationship with God is much like one with anyone else - it has to be nurtured to grow!
Take a minute today, walk to a quiet corner in your house, outside, in the bathroom, where ever! And give God a few minutes, tell Him you love him, ask Him to fill you, be mindful of the blessings that surround you. Lift others, pray for someone you are struggling to understand, pray that others may come to understand you.
Much like a Father- Daughter, Mother - Son conversation, God is there, he wants so much for you to come to Him, to love on Him, lean on Him and trust Him with your thoughts, hopes, dreams, struggles, celebrations and everything in between.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all
circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Today I am thankful for a God who is always present, always near and who even when "don't have time" for Him, waits for me, stands right there beside me, arms wide open saying CHILD COME CLOSER, I AM HERE, PULL ME NEAR.
How close are ya feeling to God today? He is RIGHT THERE.... PULL HIM CLOSE
