So Pull Me a Little Closer.

{April 15th, 2015}

Some Wednesday morning thoughts for y'all.

Jesus Calling today reads:

"TRUST ME and don't be afraid. Many things feel out of control. Your routines are not running smoothly. You tend to feel more secure when your life is predictable. Let Me lead you to the rock that is higher than you and your circumstances. Take refuge in the shelter of My wings, where you are absolutely secure. When you are shaken out of your comfortable routines, grip My hand tightly and look for growth opportunities. Instead of bemoaning the loss of your comfort, accept the challenge of something new. I lead you on from glory to glory, making you fit for my kingdom. Say yes to the ways I work in your life. Trust me, and do not be afraid."

And this.

"So pull me a little closer
take me a little deeper
I want to know your heart
I want to know your heart
cause your love is so much stronger
than anything I've faced.."
"Closer" by Bethel Music

Life is good, but life can be hard. Situations can be difficult to face. We may not know what the day, or the week, or that "something" way off in the future might hold. We can feel restless. We can feel afraid. Things may not go as planned. Our hearts may be troubled. Yet, Jesus says come to me. He cares for us, he loves us, he goes before us...His love is stronger that whatever we will face.

I'm not going to pretend to know your struggles, but if you're there in some capacity today, could I encourage you today to simply ask Jesus to pull you a little closer?  To show you his love and his goodness? I promise He'll show out.

Go forth with confidence today, friends! I sure love ya!
