Sunday Scripture: Jeremiah 29:13

 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.  Jeremiah 29:13


This verse really caught my eye this week for some reason.  Sometimes in those moments when I am really needing God in my corner I tend to get self centered thinking ‘why is this happening’ or ‘why are You letting things go this way’ and rather than really seeking him with all my heart I start looking for ways that I can fix my problem.

It never works out when I try to forge my own path.  I end up going in circles and wading through mud puddles and wandering around truly lost.  It is only when I totally give up, fully surrender and seek Him with ALL my heart that my life seems to get back on the right track.

You would think I would know that by now after having experienced it many times over but somehow in the depths of despair I tend to forget history and start thinking I can do things on my own.  I will try harder in the future to keep this verse in mind and maybe I won’t be lost so long next time.
