God always anticipates the need of people. Even being near Jesus is healing for people. Closeness to God is less a matter of distance and more matter of the heart.

Am I close to God? Do I believe that Jesus is my first companion as I follow the Way? How can I draw nearer to Jesus today?

O Jesus, I know that You are closer to me than I am to myself. May I celebrate Your proximity today by imitating Your words and deeds.
