Draw Near

This day in Christian History...
1745 -
Colonial missionary to the American Indians David Brainerd wrote in his journal:
'I am often weary of this world, and want to leave it on that account; but it is more desirable to be drawn, rather than driven out of it.'

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:44

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith,
having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience,
and our bodies washed with pure water.
Hebrews 10:22
Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will remember thy love more than wine: the upright love thee.
Song of Solomon 1:4

But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
Psalm 73:28

Drawn Near....
As the Father speaks, the heart listens
for the sheep know His voice
and they follow Him.
When in the quiet you are drawn,
fly away beloved,
for the communion is sweet.
The heart is enraptured with His love,
the soul takes flight,
and the burdens becomes light.
When the Savior calls your name
and joy floods your being,
do not hesitate.
Life cannot sweeter be
until we see
clearly in the looking glass.
For now we press on
while drawn away
into His presence,
for here
we find sweet rest to our souls
and strength for the battles.
Tarry there beloved one,
for the Father enjoys your company!
Tarry there beloved one,
and rest upon His shoulder.

Listen to His heartbeat,
find shelter in His arms.
As you are Drawn Near,
into His chambers
breathe deeply of God's Love.
