31 Words of Encouragement - Day 18 - SEARCH




Today is Day 18 of the "write31days" challenge.  Once again I am linking up with Kate Motaung for the FMF free writes.  Be sure to check out each day's post here.


I spend a part of many days searching for things...

The book I know I had...somewhere!

My cell phone...really?!  I do lay it down and forget where it is!

A certain piece of paper, or item for a craft project.

My drink...there's always something to drink in one of my cups; and I carry it with me from room to room.  It's easily misplaced!

More often it's searching for something I just saw on Facebook, that I have decided I need to save or write it down...

THEN, I spend hours searching for it again!

Sometimes, I am lucky enough to find it; other times, forget it!!

Minor things.  Right?!

Well, perhaps not so minor when you need that phone or want a sip of whatever is in the cup.

And, when ready to work on that project, I just can't put my hands on what I need or want.

Maybe it is a major thing?

But, when I am searching for answers to questions I just can't answer...

I reach out to the One who has all of the answers!

Do you think God searches for us?

The psalmist cries to Him many times:

"O Lord, you have searched me and known me!"  (Psalm 139:1 ESV).

"You search out my path and my laying down and are acquainted with all my ways."  (Psalm 139:3 ESV).


"Search me, O God, and know my heart.  Try me and know my thoughts!"  (Psalm 139:23  ESV).




What will God find when He searches your heart; your thoughts?
