Over the past months and year, how have you grown closer to Jesus and His Ways? Mystics let God fill their lives with His Way, His Message and His feelings of faith, hope and love. We grow closer to Jesus as we live our moments in devotion to Him. Let yourself draw closer to Him despite your sins. Jesus always welcomed all who sought to come to Him.
Waiting is a part of life. At times, we will need to wait to hear from God. This should not surprise us. Timing is important and we may not be ready to hear the answer to our prayers quite yet. Maybe, a challenge is not to be removed as of now. God does know what is best for us. Sometimes, it is painful, boring or untimely for us. Our time is not always God’s time. In these moments, we need to be patient, pray and show our love to others. Christians need to persevere and turn to Jesus as our Companion and Savior.
Is your treasure Jesus Christ? Do you devote your life to Him and His Ways? We will spend our lives on what we treasure and our love for Jesus and others should be our treasure. Giving our lives to Him and serving others can give us a life of joy, hope and love. Seek your treasure in Jesus.
How are you at waiting for Jesus? It may feel at times like prayer is a waste of time. But, is it really? If you don’t feel anything, does that make it a waste of time for you?

You will never be disappointed when He finally arrives.
