Food for the Soul ~ James 4:8
James 4:8 says, "Come near to God and He will come near to you." God's Word, the Bible, is full of His promises to comfort us and guide us, especially through trials such as those endured this week. Perhaps you're going through a difficult time waiting for news of a diagnosis or struggling in your marriage or feeling lonely. In all these times, the Lord longs for you to draw close to Him. It is His desire to draw you close "as a hen gathers her chicks under her wing". (Matt. 23:37)
My prayer for you this week is that in whatever trial you find yourself going through and whatever fears threaten to steal your joy, you will draw near to God and find comfort and peace under the shadow of His wings. For you, Boston and West, may the Lord heal your broken hearts and hold you close as you navigate the waters of sorrow and hope.
Blessings to you, sweet friends! Your visits mean so much to me.
