But even there, if you seek God, your God, you'll be able to find him if you're serious, looking for him with your whole heart and soul.
The writer calls for us to seek God with all our being-heart, soul, and body. That's no small task.
Where are some places that you have experienced God's presence recently? Where were you? Who were you with?
I have been spending time over the past few weeks working with Susan McLeish to prepare our Advent devotional. I have been reflecting on how we prepare ourselves for Advent and thinking about ways that we can prepare a space for people to be open to experiencing and learning more about God's great love for us. Often times, my most meaningful experiences or "aha" moments happened when someone else had prepared a space where I was open to listen and look for God working in my life. They helped me to feel comfortable to ask questions and challenged me to open up my heart to encounter God.
Take the risk to find God today in your life. Search, and you will find God in unexpected places.
Every single encounter with God holds the promise of a new direction; a new perspective; a change of heart and mind. Go now resolved that your life will be different, transformed, made over again by the overwhelming grace of God.
