Heart Food: Searching

Just a quick thought for today.  Recently I've been thinking a lot about how God is worth more than anything else.  While I've always known that, I've recently been thinking about what that means practically.  How does that play out in my life?  How should my life look different because of that?

Today I read Psalm 9:10 "Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you."

Faith can seem crazy to those who don't believe.  I understand that, because they don't know the Lord.  Those of us who know God, who have experienced him, who have had their lives changed, who see him work daily, we know that he will always be there for us.  We know that he is the only constant in our lives.  Our rock.

There are many things that the world would have you seek: money, happiness, fame, security, friends, a good job, creativity, etc.  I know that I feel the pull of them sometimes.  But the thing is, all of those things can easily be lost.  If a person builds their life around those things or around the pursuit of those things, they will come up empty.  But those who seek the Lord will never be abandoned and their hope is sure.  I want to work hard at looking for God and knowing him.  That's the kind of investment I want to make with my life.

"You will seek me and you will find me when you seek me with all your heart."
--Jeremiah 29:13
