6 Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near.
Years ago I played “Hide and Seek” with God. Recklessly going about my life as if He could not see me, as if He was not a whisper away. Repeatedly placing myself in harm’s way and being blind and deaf regarding the dangers. Crawling into this hole or that closet believing it to be the best hiding spot ever, only to be suffocated by the junk and clutter already residing therein.
The text says “Seek the Lord while He may be found” and I am reminded again about the shepherd leaving the entire flock to seek that one lost lamb. Was that lamb crying out to be found or jumping
about blindly chasing butterflies oblivious to the wolves circling around it?
As that lamb I can finally acknowledge that in many small ways I was crying out, running, crying out then running until I realized that the enemy was but a jaw snap away from devouring my very soul. Praise be to God, that when I whispered Lord save me, He was right there waiting to rescue me. Because of salvation I feel the desire to shout my rescue story from the mountain tops and into the blogosphere!
Making His praise glorious!
