Even When You Don’t Feel Near to God

Even When You Don’t Feel Near to God

You are near, LORD, and all Your commands are true. — Psalm 119:151 I always used to ask God to be near, but recently I’ve tried to shift my prayers a little. I don’t think it’s wrong to ask Him to be near, and I certainly don’t think He gets annoyed if we do even though

Cutting New Paths and Taking New Ground

Sometimes you just have to memorize and meditate on the good news loops out of obedience in order to start to make the correct synapses.

Always Enough Never Too Much

Even When You’re Worn Out: Always Enough, Never Too Much

Even When You’re Worn Out by Jess The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul. — Psalm 23:1-3 Shepherds are tough mamma-jammas. There are still shepherds today — did you know that?
