"Call to me and I will answer you"- Jeremiah 33:3

I have never been one who could memorize things easily. So I don't normally stress it so much with my kids because they are the same way. However I am trying to change that. One thing that I have found that works is making it into a song. Seeds Family Worship does that for you. These songs are so much fun! I find myself singing them while doing housework or just sitting in the recliner. This morning the song that keeps bouncing around in my head is this one below. "Call to ME and I WILL answer you" Jeremiah 33:3.

I have called on the Lord often here lately. And it reminds me that though I talk to him daily, I talk to him more often and more urgently when things are going badly around here. I think we all have that tendency. It is human nature. But I am reminded that in all ways, times, and events we should call on God with an urgency. To thank him with the same urgency that we have when we are begging him for something. I think that we forget to do that sometimes. Or at least I know that I do.

Jeremiah 33:3

New International Version (NIV)
‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ (biblegateway.com)

This verse reminds us that all we ever have to do is call to the Lord. He will give you the answers. All you have to do is listen. And accept that sometimes that answer is no. And then remember to thank him for showing you his will.
