I Miss God

If you have come upon this post because you feel a distance from God, and miss Him in the way you’ve once known Him, can I just welcome you.

God has such compassion.

No matter where we are in our lives or what we have done, His heart is one of compassion towards us (Ps.103:8). We are deeply, deeply loved by Him.

‘Come to Me,’ Jesus says. In whatever place we find ourselves. ‘Come to Me,’ He tells us.

God knew us before the foundation of the world, and He knows the problems and the pain we are facing today, and He will not turn us away.

He sees as we are locked in sin and addiction and a cycle of hopelessness, and He will never give up on us (Heb.13:5).

‘For He knows how weak we are; He remembers we are only dust’ Ps. 103:14.

‘Come to Me,’ He says. Even in the grip of sin. Even after the millionth failure. ‘Come to Me, and you will find rest for your souls’ Matt.11:29. 

We don’t have to do anything or say anything, just go to Him. Just be. In His presence. In His love, which cannot be earned, and will never be taken away.

He will never turn us away in our brokenness. ‘A broken and sorrowing heart, O God, You will not put from You’ Ps.51:17.

‘Come to Me,’ Jesus says. ‘Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest’ Matt.11:28.
