Hello SpiritSpark – today you need this truth-bomb:
‘Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.’ John 15:4 NLT
“I just don’t feel close to God.” That was the complaint I heard.
Sadly, I knew exactly how she felt. Been there, done that.
Here is your hall-pass to get close to your Father God: steadfastly name your desire. Name the things and do the things that you want in your skin-tight relationship with the Most High. Sweetheart, it is so simple it almost seems comical.
I feel sure I keep the Post It note company in business with my note-to-self reminders of who I am in Christ. Because, who I am in Him is who I want to be, but …. the enemy tries to keep my gray-matter distracted and preoccupied.
Do whatever it takes.
Notes, doodling, music, writing, acting, humming, washing, cooking, reading – constant Holy input to raise His presence higher and higher and free-as-a-bird higher in you! Just do it.
Feelings come and go.
God Almighty’s presence stays put and is released in you the instant you call.
