"And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
Whatever life brings, I find His strength when I seek to know Him with all my heart. I seek Him not just with the part of my heart that is convenient, but with all that requires my sacrifice. When I become broken and spilled out for Him as He became for me, I am open to receive all that He has for me. Laying down all that I have been, I seek all that He is. I seek His Truth in the Word, and pray daily for it to change my life.
He rewards my journey with the grace of His abiding presence. His presence is consuming love, forgiveness, joy, power, peace, faith, strength. He is my God, and He will never fail me. He will handle all that arises in my life. He is my guide through the pitfalls. No weapon can rise against me. No discipline can tire me. No problem can destroy me. I shall persevere, and hold on. I will make it through any difficulty or suffering because I have sought Him in all my moments. He is my strength and my peace because I have none within myself. In seeking Him with my whole heart, I have discovered His.
