He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters.
(Psalm 23:2, NIV)
Jesus, I feel You calling me aside this morning.
Sometimes I sense You calling me in stressful times,
inviting me to seek and find rest in Your presence.
But sometimes, like this morning,
when I have done my normal devotional practice,
I feel You calling me aside further.
You prompt me to put away other good things and
spend more time with You.
You invite me to experience closer fellowship with You.
Jesus, I come to You now with joy.
Thank You for wanting me,
for enjoying me,
for desiring to bless me and be close to me, and
for wanting me to be close to You.
I come, Lord.
