As we kick off 2023, I promised a short and snappy (and heartfelt) blog each Wednesday to encourage you in the the Lord.
You can expect these 3 things each Wednesday:
-A Word: faith-building Scripture (s) to encourage you in the Lord
-A Song: heartfelt song(s) to help you draw nearer to the Lord
-A Laugh: funny meme(s) to add a little joy to your life
A Word: "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” James 4:8
The beginning of the year is always a good time to forget the past and draw near to the Lord. It’s a great time to seek the Lord, to hear His voice, get His direction and experience His love in a fresh way. While He promises to never leave or forsake us; sometimes we need to retune our hearts to experience His presence.
The New Year is a great time to draw near to Him and say, “Yes” to the Lord.
A Song: Here are three songs that never fail to touch my heart and bring me nearer to Him. A couple of these are classic oldies, but goodies … no matter how old you are or what type of music you listen to, The last song is more recent and powerful. I hope you sense the Lord’s presence as you listen to all of them!
