Jeremiah 29:13-14

If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you, says the Lord.

I loved the game of Hide and Seek growing up. I only got worried when it seemed like they were never going to find me. I would be hiding in my really good hiding place and thinking oh no ~ they don't know where I am. Am I stuck here forever? You know how our little minds think...think back…

Well, I wonder how God might think about us sometimes…Are we wholeheartedly looking for Him? Did you know that wholeheartedly means fully or completely sincere? Wow, have you been completely sincere when searching for the Lord? Completely with your whole self have you been searching for God or have I?

The Word tells us we will find Him, if we search with our whole self! What a treasure we find when we put Our Lord at the top of our list of things to find in this life. We go through life searching for the perfect mate, for the perfect house, for the perfect car, for the perfect friends, for the perfect church…none of these will ever be perfect. Do we spend the same amount of time searching for Our Savior that is perfect?

Debbie, what a beautiful way to describe God as a treasure. Praying that I honor Him as the treasure He is today.
