18 In Weekend Whispers

The Weekend Brew: Seek His Face

My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “LORD, I am coming.”  (Psalm 27:8)

Over the last several days I have felt the nudging of the Lord to meet with Him.  He sees my anxious heart. He knows my thoughts have strayed, He sees my eyes that are turning to other things.  And the days come and go and I still don’t feel as if I’ve given Him much of my time.  But the beautiful thing about the Lord is He never stops calling me.  He knows what I need — to come to be filled in His presence.  He desires me and longs that I would come and sit a while.  I hear you calling Lord, and I am coming.  Thank you for continuing to call, even when I turn the other way.

I would love for you to join me for Fresh Brewed Sundays.  This is where we share a scripture with just simple insight.  No heavy words necessary.  Feel free to use the button in your post and link up below!

    Love that verse, and I needed to be reminded that I don’t always answer when He calls me to draw closer. Thanks for being part of the nudge!

    What a wonderful verse to ponder on. ‘Come and talk with Me.’ Sometimes I think about this and it’s like, ‘yes Lord.’ Then other times it’s like WOW God, He wants to talk with me!!

    It’s wonderful to know He is always there wanting to talk and spend time with us.

    Blessings hon,

    Needed to hear this today, I’m feeling this way too. The summer often makes me feel disconnected in more ways than one. Thanks Barbie.

    How easy it is for me to get distracted by life. So thankful that He hasn’t gone anywhere and still waits for me to come to Him. Love this.
