Finding God

I read this headline today, "Archaeologists find 2,000-year-old shoe
Preserved in hollow tree in southwest England."

Finding something that was old, something that is new, something that is lost can be exhilarating experiences.

On several occasions I have found something in the basement that I haven't used in a while, or come across a book or a CD with topics I have never heard discussed.

I have lost luggage in flying, on to find it again.

That raises the question: Does God find me or do I find God? The Bible says that Jesus came to "seek and to save what was lost." It's an awesome thought. God seeks after me. The creator seeking after his creation.

Yet at the same time we find that the Bible says that God "rewards those who earnestly seek him."

God seeks me and then rewards me for seeking him! God finds me and then rewards me for finding him!

So, again, Does God find me or do I find God?

Whatever the case, it is wonderful to be found by God and it is even more wonderful to find Him.

I encourage you to do that today.

DOes God really find us...If he knows me before I am born then he never truly finds me...It is I who must find the God that is standing before me. I must see his presense in all that I am a part of, I must feel his love so that I can except his forgiveness and mercy. It is I who is lost and must find God, he is patient, kind, loving, forgiving, merciful and constantly present waiting for me to find him and take his hand so he can lead...
