Come, Spend Time with Me

During the last year, life has been turned upside down. Many of us were ordered into isolation as the virus spiked all over the country. I had time at home that I don’t normally have. And here was God saying, “Come, spend time with Me.”

I looked up Bible verses on diseases, crises, encouragement, and hope. A verse that spoke to me loudly was, For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you (Jeremiah 29:11–12). Many of us are very familiar with verse 11, but verse 12 is key. God has plans for us, but we also need to call upon Him; pray and He will answer.

As Lutheran Women in Mission, we share God’s Word through LWML Bible studies and devotions, especially in isolation.
