Read: Jeremiah 29:11-13
This past year I have experienced the Zoom meeting. Linking up with others online has opened up some new opportunities. Every Wednesday morning, I connect with my siblings to share stories about what is happening in our families. We share stresses, joys and lots of laughter. I have found these online communications priceless.
This has me thinking about how I connect with Jesus. I can’t video chat as I do with my siblings but according to Jeremiah 29:12, “You will call on me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you.” Jesus has such love for each of us and desires to hear our joys and stresses and loves it when we express thanks and praise for all He has blessed us with.
Someone once asked a young child if said his prayers each night. He thought about it for a while and then answered, “No, some nights I don’t need anything.” Are prayers more fervent when we need something? God wants to connect with us. He loves us and cares about our daily lives.
Make It Personal
Take the time to connect with Jesus today. Spend time in prayer, praying not just about your needs, but giving thanks and praise for the everyday blessings. Your words are heard and He will be present in the good times and in the times of stress.
