When you look for me with all your heart, you will find me. Jeremiah 29:13 NIV
Sometimes we look for “larger than life” moments to be reminded God is near. We wait for BIG displays of grandeur and don’t always notice the smaller gifts of His love. But, God knows how to remind us He is present in our lives. He takes time to prepare us to receive Him and provides the way for us to be gratefully blessed.
When we’re ready to receive what has been planned for our days, He finds the way to reach us. He shows us how to welcome Him with prayers of praise and find strength to be led by the Savior. He reminds us to seek Him and believe He will ALWAYS be found.
Christ guides us to the Father. And, in moments to humble our hearts, He leads us where we experience mercy and grace. He fills us with a Spirit of HOPE and provides the way for PEACE to dwell from the power of His love.
God will make His presence known, but we must be still. We must turn from our selfish ways, wait for the Lord, seek Him with all of our hearts and receive Him. He will open our eyes a little wider. He will lift us where we see glimpses of what’s ahead. And, He will find the way to remind us; He will ALWAYS be present in our lives.
Dear God, Thank you for Your love. Open our eyes, so we will be humbled by the gift of Your grace and experience the presence of perfect peace. Arm us with everything we need to recognize who’s in charge of our days. And, help us remember; if we look with our hearts, we will ALWAYS find You. Amen
