Listen, my radiant one—if you ever lose sight of me, just follow in my footsteps where I lead my lovers. Come with your burdens and cares. Come to the place near the sanctuary of my shepherds. Song of Songs 1:8 TPT Bible
There are several reasons I love this verse, but the one I’d like to focus on this morning is that if we lose sight of Him on our journey, all we need do is look for His footsteps and follow them till we catch up with Him once more. Isn’t that a comforting thought?
Distractions happen. Keeping your eyes on the prize isn’t always easy when so much is happening around you. We’ve all been there, done that, bought the t-shirt, wore it out and bought another. That’s just life, right? But to know that at any point, we can pick up His steps and walk on, that’s encouraging.
You can’t walk too far away that He can’t be reached. The mere mention of His Name brings Him into any situation you may face. Jesus. Say it and watch Him rush in.
Today in your current situation, call Him. Call His name, Jesus. Let His presence still the raging sea and transform your current waves to still water. You can bring all your burdens and cares and lay them before you. He cares for you.
