27 “God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.” Last night after moving for three days into our new home I was feeling a combination of relief and frustration. Relief that we had gotten most of the boxes out of the kitchen but frustrated because for three days I had not read my Bible. I had prayed throughout the day but I hadn’t had my usual sustained half hour of prayer time first thing in the morning. I remember Beth Moore saying she was on vacation and after about three days she told her daughters that if she didn’t get into her Bible she was going to lose it and I remember wishing I had the genuine desire to be with God like she did. Often I have found I spend time in the Word and in prayer because I should, not because I want to. When I am apart from my husband for three days I can’t wait to be with him. I have had to pray for that kind of desire to be with my Jesus-because I want to and not out of an obligation. It is a blessing to yearn to listen to and talk with the Lord after these past few crazy days. When I am not in conversation with Him I feel disconnected from His presence. I am glad to have the move behind us and grateful for the reminder that I miss my Love when we are apart. Blessings.
