Did you catch the Awe of the question of the Old & New Testament?
Where are you?
I am waiting. Not the jittery, all over the place waiting feeling, but the not really knowing what is about to happen other than something extroidary is. You know…like little ones on Christmas Eve…like Mary throughout her journey to the manger.
Where is He?
He is purging through the innermost of my heart, it is, above all, wicked and decietful, (Jeremiah 17:9) and exposing the hidden things, the lies that were never meant to be there in the first place. A beautiful picture of my brokeness and He being all that will satisfy.
Let us never give up seeking more and more deeply Him who will never give up on you, Him who reaches for you, Him who rescues you, Him who remakes you. No matter how far, how deep, how long its been in your seeking Him, He is there with an out stretched extention of mercy, to reach you, to hold you, to draw you near.
The Greatest Gift Moment of Reflection
- What would you say if God called out to you now, “Where are you?”
- What does it meant to you that God seeks you out and finds you when you are far from Him?
- What places deep within your soul do you long for the Lord to seek out during this season?
