His love is that deep and pure. As I draw closer to Jesus and seek a deeper relationship with the Lord, sin has become so much easier to see. It is everywhere. Right and wrong are so very distinguished from one another. While, it tempts me daily I continue to grow stronger. I awake each morning feeling cleansed and refreshed. Each night I confess my sins and shortcomings to Him and He listens. Of course He already knows where I've fallen short, but He seeks to hear me acknowledge and be accountable for my sins. If I come to Him with a pure heart and seek forgiveness He will always be there for me. He washes & He cleanses. Not because I have earned this...He does it because He loves me. He loves us so much that He spared us of what we deserved.

I am reminded daily that words come so freely to me. I often speak off emotions and do not take the time to be silent and process my thoughts and feelings. Only after I have spoken do I stop to question whether my words or actions bring glory to Him. When a text is sent, it's often out of hurry and the quicker I can type and get my message sent, the better. Yet again, only after I have hit the send button do I stop to read over my message. More times than not, it's full of typos and errors and perhaps even filled with words I regret having used. Today I pray that you, Lord, will help me to strengthen my patience in this area. Please let the words of my mouth become a direct reflection of the meditation of my heart. Let me be still when I am eager to react. Let your mercy be an example to me daily. Draw me near, Lord.

An overwhelming sense and need to love on God's people has been driving me lately. I've been blessed to have this placed upon my heart. What better way to love my God than to love his people? Through my journey of drawing closer to the Lord, I've learned when God speaks to you, it can be so subtle and if you happen to miss it, he will tell you again and again until you cannot mistake his message.
