I wish I were closer to Jesus. Do you feel the same way? At times, I feel like He’s literally holding me. But at other times, I know there’s distance and I usually know why.
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” Luke 15:20
We may know that story as the Prodigal son. But isn’t it “our” story too? I love the words, “long way off.” You may feel or actually be “way off” today. But when you take that first step back toward Him, you realize that He has compassion for you and celebrates your coming back. God is running toward you today. If you have this pull to be closer to Him, close your eyes and whisper His name. He’s closer than you think. – Sandi
