The Christmas season has not ended for me as I continue to meditate on Immanuel – God with us.  The fact that God is near has been a consuming thought for weeks.


Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.  Philippians 4:4-5 NIV


Intimacy with God is to be desired and we are told that God is close to:

·       Those who call on Him (Psalm 145:18)

·       The broken-hearted (Psalm 34:18)

·       Those who draw near to Him (Isaiah 50:8; James 4:8)


The nearness of God – He is so available . . . amazing.  Life brings many opportunities to experience God with us.  Rejoice today that God is near.


Sharing the journey with you,
