"Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you..." James 4:8, NKJV
There’s something so inviting about a beautiful wreath hanging on a front door. Do you have one up on your home for this holiday season? Something about a wreath just welcomes you in and makes you feel at home.
I believe God wants all of us to have that same "welcome home" feeling in this season -- really, every day...because we are welcome in His family! There’s nothing you have to do to “clean up” or “get perfect” or “fix” so you can talk with your Heavenly Father. He will meet you right where you’re at and would love to sit with you and have a true, heart-to-heart conversation with you!
So no matter what you’ve been through, what you’re going through, or what people have said about you...YOU are welcome in the Father’s house! He has the wreath hung on the door and He’s inviting you to come spend time with Him. He loves you!
Say This: “Father, thank You so much that I am always welcome in Your presence. I’d love to have a heart-to-heart conversation with you today about these things that have been stressful or concerning to me: _______________ (list them and talk with Him about each!). Thank You for loving me right where I'm at and guiding me every day, in every season. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
