What do we do and where do we turn when
things get hard? What about when you
are really excited about something, who
do you tell about it? I am so thankful
for my family and friends in my life,
and many times when something happens,
good or bad, I pick up the phone (unless
somebody close to me is right with me)
and call to share the news.
Well, I have learned over time as I
have drawn closer to God, that the
very best place to turn is to Him.
Instead of calling somebody on the
phone, I should call out to Him!
I have learned to praise Him and
thank Him for the good. I also
have cried out to Him many times
when things have been hard and
overwhelming for me.
Psalm 145:18 says:
"The Lord is near to all who call
on him, to all who call on Him in
As I have called on the Lord, I have
found His promises to be so TRUE.
He IS near- I can sense His love,
peace, and truth in my life when
I call on Him.
I think one important thing for me
was to call on Him in "TRUTH".
Growing up I kinda made God who I
wanted Him to be. I wanted Him to
protect me, bless me, and also
wanted heaven one day. But I
have learned that there is so much
more than that when there is a true
relationship with God through His
Son, Jesus Christ. When I know the
truth, God's Word, then I call on
Him and understand who He really is.
I know that God is good no matter what
my circumstances may make me feel like.
No matter what you go through, remember
that God is near: all you gotta do is
CALL on Him!
