An Invitation

God takes note of your JOY and holds it safely to His heart to preserve it for your times of sorrow when He can BURST it upon you like clouds of rain on parched land.

The Lord's eyes see everything; absolutely everything.  He sees our suffering, and He has a plan for our relief.  This truth cannot be spoken enough into our spirits.

He's always planning for our good, always thinking thoughts of righteousness, peace, and love towards us, on our behalf.

Our humble words to Him always get a hearing, and our feelings are acknowledged tenderly by Him in the courts of Heaven.  He talks to Jesus and Holy Spirit about us. He is a proactive God, full of knowledge regarding our cause and the true intentions of our hearts.

Daddy will stop what He's doing and listen to us.  He will stop the earth's rotation on our behalf.  We desperately matter to God; and let's face it, y'all... we all want to matter.

Stop what you're doing and talk to God without the "thees" and "thous" of religiosity and posturing.  He sees right through you to the wall behind you, so talk to Him as a friend and you'll see that He's listening.

Ask Him to reveal Himself to you... He's always up for that challenge when our hearts are willing to believe.  If you're willing to turn your back on fear, I invite you to seize this moment to speak to God; for you'll never have a better opportunity than "now" to know the greatest, most loving, and approachable Friend there is.


Praying your strength in the Lord,

"... fervent in spirit, serving the Lord."
(Romans 12:11b)
