Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Have you ever searched for something until you’ve looked everywhere you can think of and still not find it? Ever been to Wal-Mart and forget where you parked? You join others with their arms in the air clicking the lock button on the key and walking the aisles. I’ve lost my keys and searched for them everywhere…I thought. The one place I didn’t think to search was the trash. I threw them away with a piece of trash I had in my hand. They were easy to find once my wife said, “Trace your steps. Where did you go and what were you doing?”
Also, I’ve spent hours searching in the grocery store to find what I want. I go to where it was before and it’s not there. They moved everything around, nothing is the same. It’s frustrating.
Of course, we’ve all searched for that item we stuck in that certain place so we would know where it is when we want it. We just can’t remember where that perfect place is.
The real question is are you searching for something missing in your life. Have you looked in all the wrong places? Gotten into trouble because of it? Maybe you are searching for meaning in your life. Reach out to the Lord. Seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him, and in Him you will find everything you need. Everything else will pale in comparison.
