Where am I? Where are you? Sometimes, I feel lost. Sometimes, I feel so comfortably numb I get worried about myself. Sometimes, I feel like I am spinning circles and then I find Him in the middle of my mess and I am right where I belong.
Advent reminds us of the coming of Christ. It’s the opening of the eyes to see His light enter into my world.
What more could we want than a God who chases us down with His love?
If He is asking where I am right now, in this right now place, and seeking me in my far away places. Where do I want to be found? Where do you want to be found?
For all these years, I’ve been walking with Him, I am still learning to keep my gaze fixed on Him. Honing my eyes away from the distractions that will potentially chain me. I try to be more focused on submitting to His every prompting. Me, chasing hard, after the One who has already been chasing me. His love finds me when I am lost in some dark alley and valley of the heart. When I am off track and lost this God seeks me out. He goes to where ever I might be and doesn’t give up until He has found me. He shows up and turns on the light on the places in me that drool for attraction and attention. The places that cave and crave other things more than Him.
I hear my heart cry out, “Father, find me and draw me out. Expose me and turn me round. Draw me to Yourself, and You alone. Let my hearts affections be wholly for You and not after those things which will never quench my heart thirsts.”
Journal this or at least ponder and bring your thoughts to God:
Where are you? What has drawn you away? How is He coming to find you?
All is grace,
