Looking with all your heart

There’s a new Kenny Chesney song that sticks in my head and I find myself singing more than I want to.  “El Cerrito Place” and the chorus goes, “I’ve been looking for you baby, I’ve been looking for you baby…”  several times more.  You would think that kind of repetition would not make for a good song, but for some reason, his single-mindedness to find this girl, not giving up, going to all her favorite places, is endearing.  I love to think that if I went missing, that my dear husband would spend many hours and weeks and months with the same determination to find me.  🙂

How hard and how much do we want to find God?  Do we run after a relationship with Him in the same way we run after our earthly loves?  How amazing it would be (and I’m including myself in this) if we could persistently and desperately yearn and long for a close relationship with God.  He never walks away from us, never leaves us; it’s usually me that steps back for whatever reason.  He just waits and loves and rejoices when I finally get it through my head that He is always there.  Slainte, Lisa

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”                         – Jeremiah 29:13

    • Thank you so much! 🙂 I like your quote…we have to get up first before doing anything else. It reminds me of another quote I like: “It’s not what you’re dreaming, but what you’re going to do.”

  1. Beautiful Lisa. Thanks for the direction this morning! Our God is a Romancer, so full of love! I just adore that He tells me I WILL find Him and that He pursues us! What gal could resist?!

  2. What a beautiful post! It’s wonderful to find someone who is also truly trying to live a life in relationship with God. A good devotional, one of several that I use, is Joyce Meyers’ “Hearing from God Each Morning”. You might enjoy it.

    • Thank you so much! I’ll look into that devotional…sounds great. 🙂 Stay safe tomorrow if you’re on the East Coast. We’re going to get a lot of rain and wind here in VA, but the worst of it looks to be heading north.

I welcome your thoughts...
