A brief addition to my most recent post (“Yes, again”).
If you feel disconnected, withdrawn, rebellious, or far-removed from the presence of Christ, then these silent moments (see previous post) — these opportunities to experience the tenderness and healing of His presence — might seem like an impossibility, or perhaps they might even seem less than desirable.
For those of you who sense what feels like a chasm between your heart and the intimacy of Christ’s presence, I have an exhortation:
Grace never runs out — you are never too far gone, never a lost cause. Are you breathing? It is because His breath is in you. You are known. You are desired. All of heaven testifies that You are His beloved. Child of God, it is never too late to come home.
It is worth it.
He is waiting. As long as you have breath in your lungs, He will wait for you.
Joy awaits you.
