Jesus Draws Near

As I sit here praying and talking with God about what I should write about, my current mood comes to light. I've been in more of a down mood the past week or so. This seems to be a tough time of year for a lot of people, so I know I'm not alone. I'm never alone as Jesus is always with me and I hope you know Him too.

I know the meaning of Psalm 34:18 "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit". I've had many dark times in my life but through them all, I remember Jesus being very close to me and I know I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for Him and His love. As I continue to pray and type this short blog, I feel Him drawing closer, reassuring me and strengthening me like he has done multiple times in the past.

I'd like to use today's blog as a short prayer for all those struggling. My words are few today but sometimes a lot can be said in a few words. I hope this is the case for today's blog.

Dear Lord, my Father,

You know my heart and what I'm struggling with just as you know the struggles of those reading this. I pray for the ones reading this as well as those that aren't. I lift everyone up to you today, Father but especially those that are brokenhearted. Bring them hope and peace Father. Comfort them with your love and let them experience you in a way that they never have before. I ask for you to send your ministering angels to those in need, dear Lord.

Thank you, Yahweh for loving me and saving me. I love you and I praise your holy name,

In Jesus' Name,
