so many meanings… Close to you, Close to God, Close the door, they closed the circut, etc, etc.

God being close to me is my redeeming quality.  I am so blessed and so thankful that I have a close relationship with

God.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not near as close as I want it to be.  However, He loves me, He protects me, and HE is my

saving grace.  Without His grace and mercy I would be nothing, absolutely nothing.  I thank HIM everyday that He is

never changing because I know I am, I know I am unworthy and such a worm.

He brings me up, He makes me His, because I give my heart to Him alone.


God’s Love Is Closeness

God’s love is drawn to us that want Him.  He will never move, never leave.  You just desire.  Tell Him.  He knows, but

you tell

James 4:8 says, Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.


I found so many other verses about this very thing.  If you want to read them click   here

God desires us to ask him.  His need to be wanted is so passionate and He is a jealous God.

The devil will do whatever he can in any role he can to make you think that you don’t need God or have a close

relationship with God.

But you do.  It’s his WILL, His DESIRE, He loves us so much, He wants us for eternity.  Are you close, do you desire to be

closer still?  Read your Bible, Pray, find a Home Church, Talk to Him, just like a friend.  Have a

conversation.  Outloud!!!

I try to live this every day. Be closer to God

Five Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday


(this is from Lisa-Jo Baker’s Blog that explains FMF)
So, here’s the skinny: every Friday for going on four years now hundreds of people have joined a kind of writing flash mob over here.
We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that I post here at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the #FMFParty (It stands for Five Minute Friday Party).
No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.
Unscripted. Unedited. Real.
It started because I’d been thinking about writing and how often our perfectionism gets in the way of our words. And I figured, why not take 5 minutes and see what comes out: not a perfect post, not a profound post, just five minutes of focused writing.
So now on Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write without worrying if it’s just right gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes.
Your words. This shared feast. It’s easy to join in, just:
Check what the prompt is on my Lisa Jo Baker’s Blog.
Write a post in only five minutes on that topic on your blog.
{And if you don’t have a blog, no worries! Just leave your writing as a comment on my post} Link over to Lisa’s blog and invite friends to join in. Select the permalink to your post {so not your blog url but your post url } Using the blue linky tool at the bottom of Lisa’ Five Minute Friday post enter your link. It will also walk you through selecting which photo you want to show up in the linky. Your post will show up in our Five Minute Friday linky. Be sure and encourage the person who linked up before you!
Our most important requirement for participation: There’s really only one absolute, no ifs, ands or buts about it
Five Minute Friday rule: you must visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community
