I’m glad that the Lord is a forgiving God. He said He would never leave nor forsake me. That’s a good thing. I wish I could say the same for myself. The business of this world just never gives up. Work, kids, house, bills….on and on and the Word of God falls to the wayside. Seems there is never a quiet time for reading anymore. I mean Quality reading. Just as He is the Water of Life, if one doesn’t read and get quiet with Him, you get thirsty, REALLY thirsty!
But I know that He is always with me no matter how far I feel from Him. I know He calls me to come aside still. I know it is a weird comparison, but just as I felt that intense need to call or go see my Mom when I had not in awhile, so also is the constant feeling of need to seek the Lord in His Word. I mean constant NEED, to come aside and listen to Him for awhile and drown out the voices of the world.
Have you had your time with the Lord today? He loves us all.
