Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Our seeking God longs to be sought! God placed his fingerprints all over the universe and gave us places to find life and pursue meaning in that life. He had a purpose for this plan: God wanted us to seek him, the One behind it all. While God is never far away from us, he longs to be sought and found by us. When each of us seeks after God, we not only bless him but also live out one of our life's essential purposes!

My Prayer...

Heavenly Father, I long to know you more completely — as the old hymn* says to Jesus: "Beyond the sacred page, I seek Thee Lord. My spirit pants for thee O living Word." Loving Father, I ask that your presence would be recognizable in my daily life. I truly want to get to know you, even as I am known by you. In the name of the Savior, I pray. Amen.


* From the song, "Break Thou the Bread of Life" by Mary Lathbury.
