Draw Near

July 4, 2018

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help you in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Draw near.

Come proud, religious, liar, thief.

Come as you are.

I love you with an everlasting love.


I give rest to souls.

Stressed out?

My ways are gentle and My yoke, light.


I am your strong tower.

A refuge of safety and strength.

Father to the fatherless.

Deliverer to all who cry out for help.

Do not be afraid – I will save you. I have called you by name – you are mine. When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you. When you pass through fire, you will not be burned; the hard trials that come will not hurt you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy God of Israel, who saves you. Isaiah 43:1-3

I rescue the weak.

Draw near during judgment.

My robes of righteousness cover you.

Mercy and grace.

Love unending.

By My wounds you are healed.

I never turn away.

Nothing is too broken or ugly. Share on X

Ashes for beauty.

All things made new.

I stand and wait, love you as you are.

Find Me in the midst of chaos, loss, life.

I am there – I never leave.

I simply wait with arms wide open.

Step through the door, welcome home.

More about Liz

I'm a free spirit. I hate rules and legalism. I love art and nature, music, the beach and dogs. I like to garden, take pictures and read. I tend to speak my mind and have a rip-the-band-aid -off approach to life. (Brace yourself, this might hurt.)

    1. Nothing will ever be 2 hard for us. Jesus already paid
      the price. When we go through the fire He rescues us
      before we get hurt. It reminds me of Daniel in the
      Lions den.
      Thank you for inspiring us, sweet sister in Christ.
