Well hello friends. It’s been far too long hasn’t it? Let me apologize. I could come up with a thousand different excuses but let’s just be honest, I lost my fire to write.
I’ve struggled with what to write. It got put on the back burner and then that back burner just kept getting colder and colder. I know it probably sounds like a lame excuse but I’m a little tired of trying to be perfect. So I thought I’d just get that out of the way right away with my first post back. Whew, that feels good. Now we can just move on, right?
Now I believe in discipline and certainly need to work on that. For me to truly get back in the habit of writing I need to write, even if it doesn’t get shared. But I also believe for myself there was some serious need for a break too.
Do you ever find yourself just going through the motions? Hello, that was me for sure!
Did you know we were created with a void in us that is always hungering to be filled? We were designed to seek and worship and if we aren’t seeking and worshiping God we WILL do that with worldly things.
In this day and age, seeking God first is often a quick Bible verse someone shared on social media and then continuing on our scroll. Please don’t take this as judgement. I’m speaking from experience.
One minute with God out of the 1439 remaining minutes in a day leaves a whole lot of room for the world to work on filling that God sized void in us. God is bigger than everything in the world and what He can do with that ONE minute is amazing!!
But what if we shifted our focus and our gaze was always on Him throughout our day? What if we looked for God and worshiped Him while we carried groceries in?
Did you see Him in the sunrise this morning? Praise Him for it! How about that time you couldn’t get that stinking second bale to load on the bale fork without tipping but asked for His help and of course He helped? Just me? Okay you get the point.
Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! 1 Chronicles 16:11 ESV
There are always reasons to worship our Heavenly Father. When we seek with our eyes open we keep Him front and center in our day even when our Bible isn’t open.
But on that topic, what if we left our Bible’s open on the counter or table? When you walk back in the house it’s the first thing you see then. So grab a bite with Him as you fill up on what truly sustains us.
Let’s be intentional and awake to our thoughts, daily habits and time. It will show what we’re seeking most. Today, let it be YOU Lord!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on ways you seek Jesus and fill that God sized void with Him more than the world. Share in the comments so we can all encourage each other to keep seeking and worshiping Him.
