Truth Tuesday – Seeking Him Is Essential To My Wellbeing

by Kathy

There are days, when my time spent reading God’s Word and talking to Him are so rich and encouraging, my heart overflows with joy.  However, there are also days when I feel as though my time with God feels awkward, unfocussed and lacking.  It is on these days, that I have learned it is necessary to stop and get very still, asking God to reveal the reason behind these feelings.

Here is what He often shows me:

  • There is unconfessed sin in my life.
  • I am harboring a bad attitude that is in need of an adjustment.
  • I’m allowing fear and worry to consume my thought process.
  • My mind is filled with long to-do list of all the things that I want to accomplish that day.
  • I am simply going through the motions of my quiet time, checking it off the list, but not truly seeking Him and taking the time to want to hear what He has to say to me.

Here’s the thing I want to share with you today…When your time with God feels as though something is missing or lacking, it is wise to pause, ask and wait for God to reveal what is going on in your heart.  You have to be still and allow Him to show you.  There is nothing easy about this, but I will tell you that I have found this to be absolutely essential to my soul’s well-being.  There is such beauty that comes from this kind of waiting on God.

When we truly seek Him, going to Him, giving Him our best undivided attention, asking for His revelation and help, He will never leave us empty handed or empty hearted.

Have a grace full week seeking Him and gazing on His beauty ~
