I read a blog this morning that made me sit and think. The topic was, "What are the small things that keep you close to Jesus?"
My thoughts immediately said,"anything that keeps you close to the Lord is NO small thing."
There was a period of time when I just didn't read my Bible every morning. I was in an ugly place and it had been a hard year. While I still desired to be used in ministry I knew I wasn't hearing anything. Why? Mostly,I couldn't hear because I wasn't listening. God never ceases to speak. The problem is our listening skills, our lack of going to seek His voice in the Scripture.
He wants to talk to us. He wants to share His heart.
So those small things that drive you to him are no small things at all. They are gifts, reminders, gentle nudges.
