Today I read one of the most beautiful things I’ve read in a long time, and it’s another verse I’ve skimmed over without paying the attention it really deserves. Today I will pray for everyone who is seeking answers in their lives, either in times of great joy or overwhelming sadness. Jesus is waiting for you, but he wants you to come away with him and spend time alone with him. Lately I feel a closeness to him that I haven’t felt before in my life, and it’s literally like he’s taking my hand and leading me away from the crowd (the noise of my life) so we can be alone. And it’s in those times alone with him that I learn the most about who I am…in his eyes!
“Jesus led him away from the crowd so they could be alone.” Mark 7:33
I don’t want to spend any time today wasting any time focusing on anything other than encouraging you to take his hand, walk with him, away from the crowd (the world) and dive deeply into his loving arms. I can promise you that you will not come back the same.
