There have been times in my life when I've really needed God to show up and make things clear for me.
There have been other times when out of nowhere God has affirmed something that I hadn't even turned to Him with for an answer.
And I believe there have been a thousand more times when God has shown up and I've missed His presence all together.
I hope when I get to Heaven He plays back my life and says,
"Remember that day when such and such happened??? That was Me....."
"Remember that time when you felt all alone and a friend showed up, that was Me....."
Today, I'm wondering if you are longing to hear from God with an answer to a prayer request or if you want to believe He loves you but you are struggling to believe He is really there.
Maybe you've slipped away from a close relationship with Him or maybe you feel like you've never really had a relationship at all and you wonder how other people do.
I don't know where you're at in life when it comes to your relationship with God,
but I do know this.
He's there in the midst of wherever you are, and He is calling you.
Do you know how I know?
Because His Word says over and over that He calls us to Him with an everlasting love and that He is faithful to keep His Word. (Jeremiah 31:3)
He loved you before you were even born (Jeremiah 1:5), and He has plans for you.
His plans are to give you a Hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
He calls you by name. (Is. 43:2)
Today, I feel so strongly that God is using this blog post to be your sign.
My quiet time has led me to pray very specifically for all of you who are longing to hear from Him in a personal way.
Don't run from this post today.
Don't ignore Him today.
He wants you to know Him just as He knows you.
Look up and ask Him to lead you into a relationship that changes everything about your future.
Open your heart today.
Today is your day.
Believe me, I did not begin my morning thinking this was where my writing would lead.
I feel so overwhelmed with His presence right now and so certain that He led me to these words and to the song below which I had never heard until this morning as I was looking for a couple of verses to share.
He's calling you today.
He's calling you to the cross where His Son willingly died for you and for me.
The same love that saved the world longs to save you.
Here His call today.
And answer with the words, "I am yours, Lord, lead me."
