Seeking God Day 9
The sun had already set as I flew down I 294 on my way home from a week long trip in Michigan. I was racing the clock, trying to get to my hometown in time to watch two of my babies perform in their first marching band competition of the year. They have been marching literal holes in the bottoms of their shoes every day for hours since June and last night was the night all of their hard work would be on display for all of us to see and celebrate.
The 3 hour drive proved to be a decompression chamber after an intense week of being challenged to explore and nourish myself and my dream. I haven’t fully realized exactly what that dream is however, I was confronted once again with the fact that God loves me enough to place a longing in my heart to become, to grow into more. Not only that, but if I am willing to take a risk there is so much more to learn than I ever dreamed possible. As I type, I wonder why I so often need to be reminded of my worth in God’s eyes? Why do I continue to be surprised by the way God lavishes his love on me?
He sees me.
Psalm 139: 1-6
You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
1 Corinthians 2:9-10
“It is written, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God his prepared for those who love him’ but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.”
The Bible is full of verses that say, He sees you. He cares for you. He has a plan for you. He loves you. He came for you. He saves you.
The Bible also promises that if we seek Him, we will find Him.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Why am I always overwhelmed with surprise?
Actually, I’m glad I continue to be overwhelmed with surprise. I want to be someone who continues to be shocked by God’s love. I want to live a life of wonder and continue to discover God’s holiness.
I want to be a woman who seeks God and what His will is for her life. Surprised, shocked, overwhelmed, learning. That’s who I want to be.
Close your eyes and listen to Bethel’s You Don’t Miss A Thing. I promise, it will be worth it.
Blessings my friends.
Continue to seek God.
Share with me what He is showing you.
