I misplaced my glasses the other day. I knew they were somewhere in the house and wasted some time looking. While other readers exist, they are either the wrong strength or have cheap lenses.
At one point I almost quit looking and was willing to settle for those cheap glasses. But I was obsessed. No matter how many times I told myself to give up, to move on and settle for almost being able to read, I couldn’t quit. I just knew they were somewhere in the house.
Finally, I found them under some mail that was carelessly tossed onto the dresser. Oh the relief when I put them on and could do my Bible study without the distraction of trying to focus.
I have actually been through this process many times for items of even less importance or urgency. Yet I obsess in finding the misplaced item.
So if I am willing to spend time, time I could do something else with, looking for stuff, why can’t I seek God with that kind of effort. Why can’t I my focus on Him so much that I won’t quit until I find Him?
I want to seek Him out with such heart that He has to answer.
