I remember when I was young, my gran used to beckon me to “come close so I can…”. I would get all excited when she said that to me, as often it was to give me a some sweets or some coins from her purse. It maybe doesn’t sound like much now, but at that time, and at that age, it really meant something to me.

There is another person who beckoned to me to “come close” many years ago, and I responded, and that is God. God continues to call me to Him after all these years, because He knows that sometimes I just need reminded to go to Him when I’m in trouble.

As you come close to God in prayer, He brings purpose even from the brokenness of your life. You can’t remain downcast when you turn your face upward to God. He reaches down to your lowest pit, but He doesn’t leave you there. Women Who Move Mountains – @SueDetweiler
