Get Closer

As close to God as you choose to be

    If you think God is far from you, do you consider who moved?  We are the transient nomads in our relationship with God.  He is ready, waiting and available to you at all times.  We are the door closers, the fence builders, the distance stretchers, and the absent minded ones of Him.  'Peace does not come from the absence of conflict but through the presence of God during the conflict.'
   James 4;8  ''Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.''  Psalm 71;12  ''Do not be far from me, my God; come quickly, God, to help me.''
   The Bible says not to be lukewarm in our beliefs and faith but when we keep God at a 'comfortable' distance in our lives then that is exactly what we are.  When we are looking for something we've lost, isn't it almost always in the last place we look.  May God not be our last resort in our lives but always the first and foremost.
