We talk to God and nothing is lost.

Matthew 7:7 Ask and it shall be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock, and it shall open you you.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven; I will forgive their sins; and I will heal their land.
James 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed.
The effective prayer of a righteous person can accomplish much.

Our Lord gives us strength; He walks with us.

Waiting, hoping in the Lord – no time is lost.

Psalm 119:114 You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your words.
Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage, I have overcome the world.


Placing our trust in the Lord.

Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in Him and I am helped; therefore, my heart exults and with my song I shall thank Him.
Psalm 40:4 How blessed is the person who has made the Lord their trust, and has not turned to the proud nor to those who lapse into falsehood.
Psalm 37:5 Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it.
Psalm 37:6 And He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgement as the noonday.


Draw near to the heart of our Christ.

Psalm 27:4 One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to meditate in His temple.
James 4:7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Hebrews 10:22 Let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for Christ who promised is faithful.


Heavenly Father thank you for your love that moves our heart.  We will draw “Closer to Christ”.
Humbly I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Please forward this so others may be blessed.
