Memory Verses: Week 8

I believe that Satan doesn’t want us in God’s word and will use any and every means possible to keep us from the truth and therefore we must be prepared and have a PLAN!

To work on hiding God's word in our hearts, 
this year I'm going to be posting a memory verse for each week
 along with a printable to print out and hang up. 

Here's the verse for week 8:

The Lord is a good, good father, full of compassion and unending favor. 
He love us so, He hears our cries, and He answers our prayers (in His time). 
He is our refuge and strength, our very present help in times of trouble. 

But sometimes, it feels like He is far away and silent. 
Like He isn't close but a million miles away. 
But that's not true- He is with us ALWAYS. 
He hears our prayers and knows our circumstances.

This verse gives us clear directions for getting the Lord near to you: 
1. Call upon Him
2. Call upon Him in truth

How often are we guilty of living our lives on our own, 
according to our own timetables, 
without calling on the Lord? 
I know I am definitely guilty. 

It is one thing to call on the name of the Lord when we are in trouble, 
but it is entirely another thing to call upon Him with each and every decision we make. 
If we refuse to seek Him and walk with Him, He may well allow us to be captive of our own decisions to teach us that His way is always the best way. 

So the question for us is.....If we aren't as close to Him as we would like to be, 
are we calling upon the Lord AND doing so with a purse heart?
