What am I looking for?

It's a quiet Monday morning, a peaceful retreat after a fun filled, full to the brim weekend...well except for Abby's persistent yapping at the back door, whether she out or in. After posting about the Wildcats victory last weekend, I caught up with a few friends on their blogs, they too are coaches wives. On one the blogs there was a thought provking post, which mentioned a song called, 'Show me what I'm looking for." by Carolina Liar. I read. Googled the song and listened. Got up and went outside to paint. It was there that God began to whisper to me. I went back inside and wrote:

Precious, friend. God has richly blessed us. I am moved to tears as I ponder His goodness to both of us. He has given so much. Husbands that love us. Vibrant children that bring great joy to our lives. Family and friends to travel lifes journey. Inquiring minds, capable hands and willing hearts that drive us to be the best women we can be! Yet we still feel something is missing. That there is more to life. We ask throughout our lives, ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What is my purpose in life?’

Though God has made each of us to be unique, one of a kind indiviuals we all ask these same questions and like a good father, He answers the cries of our heart. Like all of God’s truths, they lie hidden in plain sight, too simple to believe. Yet incredibly powerful for those who do: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33

I am discovering that the more I consume myself with Him, the more clearly my path becomes. Life is full of many good things, all of which can easily distract me from the one thing I can’t live without. When He formed us in our mother’s womb, He, like every artist signed His creation with His name. It is Him that we are looking for and in Him we will find everything we desire. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and allowing me to share mine.

I love you.

Thank you, Father for communicating with me. Wow! I love being able to talk to the Creator of the Universe, but nothing is sweeter than hearing from you. May your children, who are called by your name become increasingly aware of your Presence and the power of living our lives according to your Word...your heavenly truths and your will for us, in Christ Jesus. May we seek you first, above all things. May everything pale in comparison to you. May we find everything we are looking for when we find you.
