GOD PAUSE: “Good Morning!” my dear friend. How are you doing today? I hope at some point you will be able to connect with the Lord in some special way. I was just reading a verse in Psalm 34:18 that I love so much --- because it shows you and me the heart of God. It says “The Lord is close to all whose hearts are crushed by pain, and he is always ready to restore the repentant one.” What is it that causes pain to your heart right now? I want you to know that God moves into that pain. I pray you feel Him right next to you. And know this too. If you have wandered off from the Father, He is ready for you to come back --- with loving, open, welcoming arms. Dear Lord, be the Father to the broken one right now. And to the wandering one, too. Amen and amen.
