Hello blogging buddies! So today I am posting on something I just learned and am continuing to learn about.... seeking God.
"...If you seek Him, He will be found by you;.." 1 Chronicles 28:9
Okay, the most awesome thing happened last night! I was sitting in my room reading the Word and talking to God. I was writing in my journal and the most clear, still small voice said, "If you seek Me you will find Me." I didn't have to think about it or anything I KNEW that this was God speaking to me. (That's something that I had trouble with for awhile was figuring out what voice was God's, what voice was mine, and what voice was satan's, but I prayed about it and God did the rest!) Anyways, I know what God was talking about too. I've been reading a lot about different things in prayer and stuff and I just realized that I haven't been seeking God the way I need to be. It wasn't done intentionally, God knows that, but it's like sometimes we forget to seek Him and just do all the "right" things and not pay much attention. So God convicted me with that and started taking apart some of the reasons why I haven't been seeking Him like I need to.
During that I learned that time has a lot to do with it. Sometimes it's so hard to juggle life and school and work and all this stuff and still spend some quality time with the King. On top of that I really like spending time with my family as do lots of other people and it just seems there's never enough time to do all of that. Then God showed me that there is time for it all but I need to let Him have my schedule and He will weed out all the unnecessary things. And let me tell you, I just realized that there are a LOT of things that are just plain dumb to waste time on.
So, this weekend my focus is on seeking God with all of me because He will be found if we do. And I want to ask you if you are willing to seek God this weekend too and just really get into His presence? It will really bless you if you do! Something cool to do is get a pen and some paper and sit down and write down all the stuff you spend your time doing. Everything and then lay it before the Lord and pray over it. See the stuff that He wants you to get rid of and the stuff He wants you to spend more time doing. I love you guys and hope you have a really blessed weekend!!!!!!! God Bless
