He tells us to seek His kingdom first. Matthew 6:33

He tells us to seek His righteousness. Matthew 6:33

He tells us to seek Him with all our heart and soul. Deutoronomy 4:29

He tells us to seek Him in the morning. Proverbs 8:17

He says if we seek Him and pray to Him He will hear us.

Jeremiah 29:12-14

He says if we seek Him we will want for nothing good. Psalm 34:10

He says that blessed are those that keep His testimonies and seek Him with a whole heart. Psalm 119:2

****

I vow to seek Him in all things. It’s all I’ve got. It’s all that works. Life today is not doing what I want it to and I stand before Him disappointed in what I see and hear. I seek Him for solace and for serenity in this testing journey my love and I are on. I seek peace and comfort in what is. I seek calm and patience in what I have no control over. I seek Him to strengthen this faith which He works in and through me.

I’ve been told that God has done all He is going to do for us. This is taught from the pulpits. But it’s deeper than that simple and frightening lesson. He’s not done. He sent Jesus. He gave us the Holy Spirit to guide us. He is the trinity; He is Jesus and the Holy Spirit. A triune God who does not leave nor forsake His children. He is the quintessential Good Father. The father who never hurts, never leaves, never condemns. He is Abba Father. He is Daddy. He is Creator. He is Infallible.

And He loves us.

I seek Him.

I seek Him with all my strength. I seek His face continually.

1 Chronicles 16:11

O God, You are my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsts for You, my flesh longs for You  in this dry and thirsty land, where no water is; Psalm 63:1

****

He says.

See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

Deuteronomy 3:15-16

I seek life according to God’s will. I do this in light of what we go through in this life of ours. In light of what we are being told. I grasp onto His Word, His commands, laws and decrees. I seek life for us, in all of this talk of medicine, treatments, clinical trials. I seek life despite the negative reports of what they see as “professionals”. I seek life in God the Father, in our Jehovah Rapha, our healer.

I will fight to seek … turn my eyes to see His face.

I seek God. Nothing else.

I am looking up.

Within God is all that I seek. Within Christ is healing life and salvation.

Thank you for reading. Blessings to you.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

  1. Thanks for the encouragement. I don’t know why I feel so lost today. The word seek is just messing me and I knew I needed to go to Him. Thanks for your scripture and wise words of direction.

    • Amanda, I get you! I’ve been wandering around since yesterday afternoon, lost. I do know why … which is why Seek, while it messed with me, was so the prompt I needed today too. So I turned on my YouTube praise playlist and just worked … frustrated and numb. Relying on His Word and the music that so brings me into His arms. I pray you find you in His arms today. Blessings to you. Thanks for reading.

  2. Lovely post. It’s amazing how we can be strengthened by God’s voice.

  3. Hopeannfaith,
    You have shared the most important word today, God’s word. Thank you! I was blessed by your rich sharing of the different passages on ‘seek’. I must admit, I had wanted to do a little study on it this morning, but didn’t, then I read your sight. Thanks!
