“Wednesday June 3, 2015. Today's cherish nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.
I sought him in a great cathedral, dim with age, where
oft-repeated prayers arise, but caught no glimpse of him. I sought him then
atop a lonely hill, like Moses once, but though I scanned the skies, my search
was fruitless still. There was a little home where grief and care had bred but
courage, love, and valiant will, I sought—and found him there” (Anne Marriott).
Many folks seek God in a church, and they should. Others
look for Him in specific places of majesty in natural settings and indeed He is
there. But if we wait until we find the "perfect" time or place to
meet with Him, we have wasted most of our lives. God is ever present wherever
we are and desires to meet us at our point of need and visit with us there. The
Psalmist gives us this terrific advice: “Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek
his face evermore” (Psalm 105:4).
God, thank You for looking for me and waiting for me to
turn to You. Amen
In God we trust!
