Loving You MOST, Jesus {day 11} : Trusted Friend

When you need to talk to someone, who do you contact?

Husband. parent. sibling. mentor. a trusted friend. If we have any of these to reach for, we are blessed.

Have you ever tried to contact one and you can’t reach them?

I’ve had days, even seasons, like this.
It’s baffling at first. With the broad menu of methods our phones and computers offer, I persevere, leaving messages to compel response.

Days, seasons like this are hard. We feel lonely, maybe lean in toward self-pity. At times, when a day becomes a season, I’ve cried out, “God, please can I talk to a person?” … as though He doesn’t already know that I want this.

Revelation dawns.
God, You don’t want me to reach a person. You could provide a person in a skinny minute. You could place me on someone’s mind and stir them to contact me.
You’re right here – waiting.

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6.33)

You want me to reach for You.
First.

Not giving me what I want, You’re loving me with what I need.

Jesus, strengthen my faith to trust Your deep love for me. I give You my pattern of going to others first. Fill my heart to love you MOST that I might come to You first. Amen.
