Draw Near to God

"Come near to God and He will come near to you. 
Wash your hands, you sinners, 
and purify your hearts, you double-minded."
James 4:8

Draw near to God, friends.  He wants to draw near to you.  Whether you are facing a difficult time or just feel like you are walking in a dry dessert, just draw near to God.  I love how Jeremy Riddle puts it in his song, Draw Near.  He says, pull on the strings of my heart for I long to respond to You.  Draw near to God and respond to His sweet presence.

Not me, though I will definitely
be wearing my straw cowgirl
hat with my new Embrace tee!
Review and giveaway:
Recently I received a beautiful tee-shirt from Sandi over at The Olivetee.  The Olivetee aspires to share God's love through women of faith.  They do this by combining current Christian fashion trends with simple, encouraging messages from the Word of God.  Their Christian tee-shirt designs are classy with a modern vibe and the messages are simply powerful.  Sandi is so wonderful to work with and the quality of the shirts are incredible!  I have purchased tees in the past that after one wear, they no longer look nice.  That is not the case with the Olivetee!
