"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you" James 4:8
I think when we're going through something tough in our lives we blame God too quickly for not being there, not showing up. But are we showing up? Are we pursuing God the way He pursues us? I heard a challenging quote a while ago that comes to mind... "Have you prayed about it as much as you've complained about it?" Maybe next time before blaming God for not showing up or doing what you want him to do, think about how much time you've spent in His word, seeking His advice.
God, I thank you for constantly pursuing me, constantly loving me. I pray that you will help me to turn to you first. Give me a burning passion to draw closer and closer to you in everything I do. Amen.
