Draw Close to God

There may come times of great sadness and disappointment in your life.  You might experience great pain and discouragement.  Your faith is challenged in these seasons.  It is only natural to want instant relief and joy restored.  During these times hold fast to what you know to be truth through God’s word.  Surround yourself with God’s people and draw closer to the Lord.  Drawing closer to God may be just the thing you don’t feel like doing.  Do it anyway! (James 4:8) Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
