I set out to look for God, figuring if he was out there, I would find him. I would climb as high and for as long as it might take, having no idea how long and how grueling that journey would become. What I found was a trail that wended through disappointment and loneliness. I made wrong turns and met a few people who tried to discourage me.
But I was driven on by the memory of his being there—back before things broke—and encouraged by those who helped me climb higher. I learned many things about myself, some good, some not so good. But I did find God, in the end—right where I had left him.
~ Excerpted from Don’t Let Me Go by David Pierce
Of all that we can search for, nothing is more significant than God. Some of us have never known Him and are still exploring the most basic but vital issues of life and faith. Some have known Him but lost him along the way like David Pierce describes. Some of us haven’t lost Him but are still learning what it means to join Him in the ordinary moments of everyday life.
You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. ~ Jeremiah 29:13
