Brother Lawrence: nearer than we know

Wednesday, April 21, 2021
    Feast of Anselm, Abbot of Le Bec, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1109
The LORD is near to all who call on him,
    to all who call on him in truth.
    —Psalm 145:18 (NIV)
    Lift up your heart to Him, sometimes even at your meals, and when you are in company; the least little remembrance will always be acceptable to Him. You need not cry very loud; he is nearer to us than we are aware of.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, Seventh Letter, p. 34 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 145:18; 25:1-2; 34:18; Matt. 26:26; Luke 24:30; John 14:23; 1 Tim. 2:8; Jas. 4:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You remain close to those who love You.
