How do we respond to the nearness of God?

August 24, 2022

How do we respond to the nearness of God?

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. 
— Ephesians 2:13 NIV


How do we respond to the nearness of God? Sometimes, I think we fear that He is all knowing, aware of our every shortcoming. Believing we are far too broken to be recipients of His grace and love. It can be very overwhelming to be human and become easily overwhelmed, frustrated and sad. Our flesh sometimes leads us to respond in ways we are not proud of and ways that do not reflect our Father. God's great desire for us is that we would recognize our need for Him. Without awareness of our weakness, we cannot understand His strength. If we do not understand our need for His strength, how would we accept it?

As Christ followers, we are given the gift of awareness of His nearness. When we fall short, when we are ashamed of our behavior, we get to run to Him and be better. The process of recognizing when we want to be better begins to happen more quickly as we learn to spend time with our Father, embracing His nearness. As a result, he saves us from the shame we would otherwise feel.

God invites us to recognize He is closer than our skin. He is all knowing and all loving. God desires to embrace you today and show you a way to better living. He invites us to a day marked by His peace and love.

 

Love y'all,

Dear Sister, we’ve got you covered! My HOPE for the women who will attend the Wheat + Honey retreat in 2024? Jesus, we believe that whoever is meant to be at this retreat WILL BE THERE.

All they have to do is show up to the weekend, and you will do the rest of the work! What freedom and comfort that b...

Women from different places, walking in different stages ~ unlikely community? WATCH IT WORK. You’ll bond over vulnerable small group discussions (some may even name their small group squad ~ you know who you are LOL), lounging at the beach club and laughing about who gets the worst sunburn, sitting cozy out on the porches commiserating about the dating app scene (a big yikes), or watching an extraordinary Watercolor beach sunset sharing so much gratitude. Seeing the women that attend experie...

Is it you…Dreaming of a Fulfilling Break from Reality?

Are you dreaming of a fulfilling break from reality? Imagine this…First steps on the beach revealed bright white sugary sand against the shimmering emerald waters of the Gulf. Breathing deeply, eyes closing, soaking in the delicious salty air aromas. Digging my toes into the warm sand, grounding myself in a delightful way. Letting the sun kiss my skin in a long awaited reunion for this pasty gal, lol. Hearing the crashing of waves, the buzz of laughter, and the soft tones of chatter. Feeling ...
