Seeking Him

Hey Y'all!
A while back Anna posted about seeking God, and on that post, I commented a really long comment. lol. But anyways, I thought I'd edit some things and turn it into a post. :)


Ever heard the quote: "a girl should be so lost in God that a boy has to seek Him in order to find her"? It's pretty well known, so all of you probably have heard or read it somewhere, but have you ever thought of what it implies? It implies a girl that is completely consumed in God. A girl that is fixed on Him, so fixed in fact that in order to find her, a boy has to seek Him!

We need to be seeking Him daily, hourly, and even minutely; we need to be listening and talking with Him constantly, but do we? I know I don't. Maybe that is why Paul the Apostle exhorted, "Pray without ceasing."

Also, I think that we need to seek him outside just as much as we seek Him inside, or for some people, seek Him inside just as much as we seek him outside! What I mean is this, we might seek Him at church on Sunday, but what do we do the rest of the week? On the other hand, we may seek him at home with no one around, but not in front of our friends at school.

Lastly, I think the most important thought I got from Anna's post was that we need to set our priorities right; meaning that if Christ is our number one priority, we will WANT to seek Him, on the other hand, if the computer (or anything or anyone else) is our number one priority, we will WANT to be with whatever the other thing is - all the time!

Hope that kindled some thoughts about seeking Him in your mind, and that you take to heart the truth - a girl should be so lost in God, that a boy has to seek Him in order to find her!

In Christ alone,

This is so true - and something God has been growing me in. There are certainly times during the day when we need to focus on our tasks, but when we let our minds be idle, we instantly become so vulnerable to sin. That's where seeking Him comes in. I need to keep my mind in constant communication with Him as well as meditation on His Word. Thanks for this post!
