i'm not sure where this post is going to go, it may be an encouragement to somebody, i'm not sure.
but, i want to talk about something that isn't necessarily easy.
something that is really important in our relationship with God, but isn't easy.
that something is "seeking"
to seek God and what plans he has.
to seek even when everything else is going wrong.
to seek means to attempt to find, desire to obtain or achieve, or to ask for something.
i find it hard to keep seeking in my relationship with God. to keep looking for the fire.
a lot of times as Christians we say that we lost our "fire". we lost what got us excited in the first place.
most of the time, the reason why we don't feel "on fire" for God, is because we stopped seeking.
but what if it just feels empty? what if when we seek it doesn't help?
don't stop seeking. if seeking isn't helping, don't stop.
what? that doesn't seem to make any sense.
i know, it's complicated, but you have to.
everything flows from seeking God. if we are looking for something else, if we are looking for a relationship, if we are looking for something to fill the void of why we don't "feel" God anymore, or why we feel so empty, it's not going to satisfy. nothing we try to fit in the place of God is going to satisfy. none of it is going to fill the hole, only God can.
seeking may not help either, sometimes we go through times that nothing helps, i've been there.
just keep seeking, i promise it will help.
no matter what, keep seeking.
