Consider This – Right Where You Are

Are you in the midst of decision, change, loss, or other form of transition or transformation? Do you feel so immersed in your situation that you have lost sight of God’s presence, and how much He longs to be for you? I encourage you to read the next part aloud (if you can), and think of your heavenly Father speaking these words to you:

“Seek Me and you will find Me.” – Jeremiah 29:13. “Draw near to [Me], and [I] will draw near to you.” James 4:8. Remember, “I am your Creator. You were in My care even before you were born.” Isaiah 44:2a.

Who else can speak these truths to us, but God? He knows our beginning, our end, and everything in-between. He is the One who “restores our soul” Psalm 23:3.

As we consider what He has done, and is doing, our mind cannot conceive His immense goodness. He is our treasure of eternal love to be sought after as the One who holds our very life in His hands. He alone has the answer to every heart that aches, grieves, and mourns – as well as being the One who whispers our name. He gives dreams and visions that are possible only with His guidance and empowerment.

When we consider love, pure love, there is only One source, our Creator.

Today, be encouraged to take time to sit quietly and ask Him to pour His love out upon you – and consider the situation in which you find yourself. Let Him wash over you with kindness and peace, and let Him restore and refresh your soul. Listen. Listen for His whisper.

Write down your impression of what you believe God is prompting in you, or asking you to do. Let the tears come if they need to. Let Him know how much you love Him.

Now Exhale.

From my heart to yours,

Jacquie ♥

    1. Amen, Melissa. My sense is that we will have good options to choose from in this season, so we really need to Listen to make His choice. LISTEN is His word for me right now. I pray that you will know beyond a shadow of a doubt which door He is directing you to. ♥
