Hangin’ Out With Jesus

No comments

So… who’s up for this??? I know I would love to do it!! And to think about it, why can’t we?

Isn’t this what our Jesus wants us to do? Take the time to talk to Him, lay down what’s on our heart and mind, what may be putting a burden on us.

Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

Because we live from our hearts, God wants access to our hearts, to form them so that from them, we live into His purposes.

YES! YES! YES! He doesn’t want us to be stressed, sad, or overwhelmed. He wants us to pull up a chair, grab that cup of coffee, and say, “OK Lord… we need to talk.”

Hey it can be the simplest thing or a huge thing. It can be a happy thing!! He LOVES to hear praises coming from you.

“Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.” Psalm 139:4 NIV

He will never ignore your cry of sadness or your song of joy. Will He speak in an audible voice to you? Maybe, maybe not.…it could be something so small that at first you don’t even realize it was Him.  

He has so many ways to communicate with us. We just have to get all that busyness out of our minds.

We can talk to him in so many ways, just talk to Him like you normally would to someone else. If you are praying, you are talking to Him. If you are worshipping, you are talking to Him.

But I know just like the picture states that sometimes you just need to open up your heart to Him. Nothing else will do, and that’s ok. As I said above, He is always here to listen to us… messy bun, leggings and all.

So, I hope this will encourage someone today. You always have someone to open up to.

Be blessed and may your coffee cup never be empty. ☕️
