The more you draw near to me the more I am able to draw near to you.
It is never my plan to be distant from you.
I adore you. I crave relationship with you.
You will find me when you praise me.
When you surrender all into my hands with joyful abandon.
When you acknowledge the who and what of my power.
If you feel distant, dear one,
It is not because I have left you,
It is because you have failed to praise me.
You have let yourself focus on worldly distractions.
Draw near to me again.
See me. Love me. Walk with me.
Day by day take time to know me fully.
Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
