Seeking God

aug 19“When you look for me with all your heart, you will find me.”  Jeremiah 29:13 (NIRV)

Have you ever watched someone from a distance and wondered what they were really like?  Perhaps, you even met them through a mutual friend.  A brief encounter that caused you to draw some conclusions about them in those first few moments.  First impressions are important.  They either draw us in or send us running in the opposite direction.  One of the sweetest friendships God has blessed me with started out pretty much this way.  We were in the same singles class at church and from a distance she seemed perfect – way too perfect to be one of my friends.  I was a struggling single mom; she was a professional educator.  Her clothes were stylish, and my wardrobe usually donned the label of “Goodwill.”  Eventually we were introduced, and God birthed our friendship in the crushing moments of a crisis.

Have you ever watched God from a distance and wondered what He was really like? Perhaps like me with my friend, you felt that friendship with God was out of your league.  Perhaps like me and my friend it took a crisis moment to draw you closer to God.  Perhaps, you’re still sitting out there on that limb all by yourself wondering if He really exists.

I love the promise in Jeremiah that reminds us that searching and seeking out God will never land us empty handed or confused.  We will uncover who He is if we connect with Him.   Just like a growing relationship with a friend, God reveals Himself to us day by day.   He longs for us to discover, search out and unveil the glories of His character. Because only as we uncover His beauty will our lives be positioned to reflect the same.

“Father,  open my eyes so I can see  – reveal Yourself to me.”
