Jeremiah 29:13 "You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart."
At the beginning of 2021 I made a goal to seek God. At the time I had no clue what this goal would do to me. I would watch my world crumble before me. Key word is “My” world. It was a year of Never(s). Never had I ever spent so much time in the bible. Never had I ever Struggled with words to pray. Never had I ever faced so many doubts. The list goes on in both the positive and negative light. It was as if God was stripping everything away and rebuilding something in it’s place. The picture that played in my mind was a heart of stone being chipped away. Then stitching the wounds, followed by telling it to beat again.
I don’t want this to scare anyone from making this their goal. In fact this is what I wish for everyone. It’s just painful. There were moments that I went to the furthest reaches of the earth and teetered on the edge of a cliff. Just when you would think I would fall, Gods grace grabbed me by the hand and I walked of that figurative ledge. I fought many battels and my imaginary sword became to heavy to carry most days. Despite all of this, I would do it all over again. (James 1)Let me tell you what I learned from seeking GOD.
