E-votional  Seek And Search
May 2, 2001
"For thus says the Lord God, 'I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out.' "
-Ezekiel 34:11 (NRSV)


Being found, one of the surprising moments in our life.  Many times when we are found we do not know or are not aware we are lost or that someone is searching for us.  Turn the situation around and you see that it is not the easiest thing to do either.  Right now I hope someone finds the car I am selling acceptable, while at the same time I seek the right replacement.
Hear the Good News, though it is a great deal of work, God seeks us all out.  And as God does this, we may or may not notice realize or even understand what is going on.  But something magnificent happens when our seeking meets His search for us.
Oh Father, my shepherd.  Though I may get lost from time to time, Keep finding me.  When I wander off, I don't do it on purpose, but the fact remains I find myself in in unfriendly territory.  Keep me safe and by Your side all of my days and let my search for answers meet Your seeking for my life.  Thank You Father, for all You have done in my life and all You will continue to do.  Amen.
