Psalm 145:18-19 (ESV):
18 The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
he also hears their cry and saves them.
This past spring or early summer, a life group, sometimes also called a small group, began meeting in our home. Right now, it’s just us and two other couples. I’m thankful for this group. For starters, I’m no cook, and they make hosting a breeze! As time has grown, we have gotten to know each better. Our love has grown.
We usually meet on Thursdays, but last night we met because of crazy schedules and busy lives. We’re going through a book on prayer, but since one couple couldn’t make it, we just read Bible verses and prayed. I’m really glad one of the ladies had the idea to read some of the verses of the day in the You Version Bible app. The verse above was yesterday’s verse. Through these verses we were reminded of how incredibly good and faithful God is. No matter our circumstances, and lately each of our families has been struggling with some difficult things, God is still there through it all. He is near to us, and we can upon Him as we pray for each other. So, today, I’m grateful for these friends who love us, fellowship with us, and pray for us.
