Stay Close to Jesus

“Wait for the Lord;
be strong and courageous.
Wait for the Lord.”

Psalm 27:14 HCSB

“Jesus answered him, ‘What I’m doing you don’t understand now, but afterward you will know.'”

John 13:7 HCSB

 “Now this is the confidence we have before Him: Whenever we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

1 John 5:14 HCSB

There are times when life is difficult. We may be hurting, overburdened, rejected, or alone. Confusion about what’s next can make us unsure of how to move forward.

Even in the difficulties, Jesus is there! He is reaching toward you, longing to hold you up and help you through. He has given everything for us. He is our comforter and protector. He will never leave or forsake you. Reach out to Him in prayer! There is nothing to hide from Him. His shoulders are strong. Give Him the sadness, disappointment, rejection, fear, confusion, or anger.

Jesus knows everything about us and loves us more than any mere human ever could. With Him, we will find hope, peace, direction, and joy once again.

PRAYER: Dear Jesus, thank You for Your constant presence, even when I feel distanced from You. Thank You for understanding my situation even when it’s hard to explain. My hope is in You. I need to feel close to do You. In Your name, Amen.

Journal: Tell Jesus what you’re going through. Ask for His help and rest in Him.
