The Right Time to Stay Close

Hold everything earthly with a loose hand.
— Charles H. Spurgeon

Love the Lord your God. Obey him.
Stay close to him. He is your life.
Choose to love the Lord your God
and to obey him and to cling to him,
for he is your life and the length of your days.
And love God, your God,
listening obediently to him,
firmly embracing him.
..and that you may love the Lord your God,
listen to his voice,
and hold fast to him.
Love the Lord your God and obey His voice.
Hold on to Him.

During this season of changes - 

in our personal lives,

in our cities/churches/nation and world,

let's hold fast to what is unchanging and everlasting,

and stay close to the One whose love never fails.

Yes! Especially during these unsettling times, CLING to Him! I also love that He promises if we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us.

We're terminal from the first breath...a matter of time, not if. Holding to Jesus helps but, being totally truthful, sometimes it's so hard I wonder if I can do it. Then I remember, God has a plan and He has blessings; His strength is sufficient.
