My Anthem 2011

My anthem for 2011: "seek".

The Lord frequently uses a single word/phrase to get my attention. This month that word has been "seek". Honestly, I'm not confused by His word choice...sometimes I am. It makes perfect sense. I'm in a bit of a rut> complacent. Definitely not the life "stance" God ask of His people. He longs for us to seek Him so much He tags promises to His command to seek His face.

"But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find Him if you look for Him with all your heart and soul." Deuteronomy 4:29

"For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord." Proverbs 8:35

I am so humbled by His call to seek Him. It was my arrogance that first convinced me I could do "life" apart from His voice.

I truly believe this year, as I "seek" Him, I will see my Lord do amazing things in this heart. I'm ready.

"Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until He comes and showers righteouness on you." Hosea 10:12

Listen to the song above (you won't regret it). I'm praying you seek Him today. :)

In His Love,

That's my number one goal in 2011 also!! Seeking God..not what he is doing, not what I do in his name..just him! Let's keep each other accountable! =)
