In seeking His guidance I wander through the fields of my soul.
These planted fields are growing in the Word of God. But?
Do I bend my heart to Him?
Do I stand and question against His hand?
Do I look for the promises that He has given and fulfilled or question why others are still not completed?
Do I glory in the miracles He alone has placed me in and through, am I aware of the miracles awaiting me in this very day?
What do I do in the in-between times? These times when I am waiting for answers?
Why do I even seek?
Could it be that I am walking in this world simply aware that I want to be more in tune to Him?
Is questioning 'How can I get there?' the goal?
Is it possible that simply coming to Him and crying out "I want to know YOU better. I want to listen as You guide me. I want to be aware of You." Could it be that these are the most important actions to take in seeking Him?
I will never know His perfect ways. He tells me clearly my ways are not His. But the seeking. The seeking is the juice of the experience.
In seeking Him I cry out, I look under and through, I observe and evaluate.
I study, and glean truths I would never have seen. I build, one brick at a time, a way to walk that comes with trust and obedience.
I once was young and now I am older. I know some ways are not His. I know that some ways are. But there are still caves I am forging through. I am still battling fears. Surely if I was stronger I would not be battling these fears again.
But I am not. I am human and frail.
And in the midst of my frailty He holds me. He comes with His shepherd's staff and wrestles me out of my distress. He speaks over me with words like:
Ps. 46 - He is my refuge and my strength, a very present help in time of trouble.
Deuteronomy 31:8 - It is the LORD who goes before me.
Zephaniah 3:17 - The LORD my God is in my midst, a mighty one who will save, He will rejoice over me with gladness; He will quiet me by His love; He will exult over me with loud singing.
Do I take Him at His word?
For you see in Psalms 34:10 His word says: Those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
These words of encouragement are spread throughout His word and I will stand on them in this time of waiting for guidance.
