Our God is nearby!

Hello everyone! How is your school year going? (if you are in school, that is...)
Today I was skimming through my Bible, and God pointed out this amazing verse that I am now in love with! Jeremiah 23:23- "Am I only a God nearby," declares the LORD, "and not a God far away?"
God is just a prayer away! He's not like those gods in Greek mythology, for example, that sit up on their mountain and look upon the tiny humans as helpless and are unreachable to humans.

He's right there with us: every second, every minute, every day.
Isn't that so comforting to know that God is close by to us, is always there for when we need him, and is never leaving us? I think this verse from Jeremiah is God's way of saying "Hey, if you ever have a problem or are having a hard time, just remember I'm right here to listen, talk to, and help you. I'm here for you! I'm not far away." :)

I just had to share that with you all. Have a blessed week!
