Just Come

∞   BIBLE JOTTINGS  ∞

Before I was afflicted, I went astray,

but now I obey your word (Psa. 119:67 NIV).

When I was afflicted, some years ago, by a failing marriage, I came to the Lord regularly for help. I wondered when he would get tired of my coming to him for me, me, me and problems, problems, problems. 

But at least I was coming to him. And I was contacting him—from the heart—far more often than usual. Eventually, I came to love his presence. I wanted to know him better and be caught up in his purposes.

Making It Personal

  • Whom does God welcome? [Hint: Jesus said, “whoever comes to me I will never drive away” (John 6:37 NIV).]
  • What unexpected things happen when you spend heart-to-heart time with the Lord?
