How’s Your Seeking?

…but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Ps 34:10

O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. Psalm 63:1

What have you done this week to seek the Lord?

What have you done in the past few days to actively, intentionally pursue God?

How’s your seeking?

I ask, perhaps, because I know from my own experience that some days, many days, my “seeking” is less about seeking than it is about just doing.  I did my devotions.  I prayed.  I did my quiet time.  I followed my routine.

Where’s the seeking in routine? Routine is good unless it’s just that…routine.

If the motivation in my routine, in my doing, is a heart of seeking, an intentional yearning to know God, an active pursuit of deeper intimate relationship, an eagerness for more of Him, a conscious  pleading, a longing… then yes, routine is good.

Every moment of every day that I seek hard after God, I am NOT seeking counterfeits, fillers, and things that distract from a passionate pursuit.

How’s your seeking?

You have said, ‘Seek my face.’ My heart says to you,’ Your face Lord, do I seek’ Ps 27:8

May that be cry of our hearts today.

Blessings, Diane
