Today’s word is
I’ve lost my keys.
I’ve lost my phone (SO. MANY. TIMES.)
I’ve lost my sanity (Thanks, kids.)
I’ve lost my way.
But today, I am FOUND. God finds me, no matter where I am in life.
When life is so beautiful it hurts, He finds me and shows me that the beauty is in Him.
When life is so hard it hurts, He finds me and shows me that He is in the pain.
The desert. The mountain top. It all brings me to Him.
So, in the laundry, dishes, and dirty floors, can He be found?
Yes, finding Him in my everyday has been JOY. Not in those things, but how His Word rains Truth in my life – daily. I have become more intentional about meditating these past couple of months. Not just reading a LOT of His Word, but savoring the short few verses I read.
With four littles, under seven, I don’t have time to read chapters in the Bible. So, I read “Be still, and know that I am God.” I dwell and find that God is there. My God is there in the meditating. Not in the amount of reading.
I’ve felt so lost in my life. At various times. Various reasons. I can’t say that I found God in those times….rather, He found me. He reached through the power of His WORD (through music, a friend, the preacher, or something I read online) and FOUND me.
I find Him more personal as I meditate and dwell in all that His Word has for me. Be still. Breathe deep. Be found. STOP and just rest in all that makes Him, GOD.
I find rest.
I find peace.
I find joy.
I find love.
I find strength.
I find that I am enough……in Jesus.
Always, in Jesus.
