  4. Thank you Sheryl! This is such an important reminder and one I need often. Thankfully God knows how to bring his children back to him and sadly I have frequently needed those desperate moments to find my way back.

    “ Let’s never again take God for granted – or seek Him only during our desperate moments.”

  5. The Lord has spared my lie many times. I could have been killed on various occasions but the Lord was watching over me. Tha is why we must commune with Him daily by praying and reading our Scriptures. Jesus will return to take us all home when He decides when and it will be on His time and not ours.

    • Hi, Michael. Wow! Praise God for His intervention. You are so correct – we don’t know how long we have on this earth, so spending time with God in prayer and Bible reading is crucial.
      Thanks for stopping by, Michael.

  6. God is never far away. He is next to you. He lies besides you when you are awake and when you are asleep. When you ae eating or walking or working-the Lord is right besides you. You must allow yourself to feel His love for you and know that he knows more about you than you will ever know about yourself. And He wants you to love Him right back. Amen.
