Come To Me

You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. 4 Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether. 5 You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Psalm 139:3-5


The Word is life and it is Truth, and I love how the Lord ministers to us through it. It is useful for training and equipping, but I also find it is a place of refuge and peace because it is the very words of God breathed to life and penned for us to read. To hang onto. To learn from, to live from and to grow.


These last few months have brought much to our household, and I have found that the only place I can turn is to Him and His Word. When I go for the mind numbing entertainment, or the “vegging out” I’m left wanting. But the moment I turn my eyes and heart towards His, and I pick up His word, it is like cool water running over my dry and thirsty soul.


It’s easy in the midst of life and circumstances to do one of two things, 1)shut down or 2) press in. I’d love to say I always choose the second, but the sad reality is I have found myself more often than not just shutting down. But God in His infinite mercy will not let me do that. He calls to me, He draws me to Himself, and uses scriptures like the one above to remind me who He is and who I am. That He knows me, TRULY knows me. That He formed and fashioned me. That everything, EVERYTHING that is happening, or will happen and my response to it, He already knew. He loves me in my weakness, and it is in that weakness that His strength is truly made perfect.


Today, I received news about the child I am currently pregnant with. There are concerns, and possible problems with her growth and what that will mean. And I've cried many tears today, but in the midst of it, I have set my heart on Him, because He formed her and fashioned her within me, and He knows just what is going on.


Maybe your situation isn't as extreme, but regardless He wants you to remember, He knows you, He sees you, so come to Him. Seek His face, find solace in His Word and rest in His presence. Below are the lyrics to a song my husband sent me today after all this unfolded. I pray it will bless you as much as it blessed me.


That’s all for now,
Finding comfort in Him,
Your sister in Christ.


I am the Lord your God, I go before you now
I stand beside you, I’m all around you
Though you feel I’m far away, I’m closer than your breath
I am with you, more than you know

I am the Lord your peace, no evil will conquer you
Steady now your heart and mind, come into My rest
Oh, let your faith arise, lift up your weary head
I am with you wherever you go

Come to Me, I’m all you need.
Come to Me, I’m everything
Come to Me, I’m all you need.
Come to Me, I’m your everything

I am your anchor, in the wind and the waves
I am your steadfast, so don’t be afraid
Though your heart and flesh may fail you, I’m your faithful strength
I am with you wherever you go

Don’t look to the right or to the left but keep your eyes on Me
You will not be shaken, you will not be moved ooh
I am the hand to hold, I am the truth, I am the way
Just come to Me, come to Me, cause I’m all that you need
