I mentioned it on Instagram yesterday, but it’s been a while since I’ve read along with the girls of She Reads Truth. Not on purpose, but after a big move and increased workloads and an increasingly energetic little man, taking time to really dig into God’s word has fallen by the wayside for me. And I’ve felt it. I’ve felt a distance, an emptiness, a need to spend time with the Lord, but in the moment it has been hard to commit.
But you know what? Despite the junk on my part, God is always there. He always has been. Softly, sweetly beckoning me to come closer to be with him, to throw aside my need for approval from this world and to seek only His glory. And even more so, he’s done it patiently, knowing that my heart desired Him but once again was lost.
I’m so thankful for a Lord who tenderly and relentlessly pursues me, even in the middle of my junk. Who cares enough to have chosen me. Who gave his only son for me (which, having a son myself, I can honestly say I would not do). I can’t wait to dig into scripture again with these girls, but even more so I can’t wait to dig into God’s word to be closer to HIM. To know him more. And to give him all the glory.
