What do three 5TH graders and one 1ST grader do while hanging out on the first day of Christmas break? Play hide and seek of course…but only because I wouldn’t let them play video games. Two things impressed me about their play. One; that they could find a place to hide in our smallish home and two; that they actually couldn’t find each other half the time. Someone would eventually ask for a hint and then follow the voice of the one who was hidden.
There are times when I feel like God is playing hide and seek with me. Some days I wake up knowing He’s right there present in a tangible way, and other days I have to search a little harder for Him. He knows what I need and sometimes it’s the spiritual discipline of searching. Every time I seek, I eventually hear His voice leading me to Him.
Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Prayer: Lord thank you for causing me to search harder for you at times. I know that when I seek you I will find you when I seek after you with all my heart.
