"And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart."
Jeremiah 29:13

She calls herself a seeker,
and it pierces my heart.
For the familiar word has,
for many weeks now,
become confusing
as only words taken for granted
sometimes can.

It has haunted me -"seek."
How do I seek You Lord -
And how with my whole heart?

Will I find You in Your word,
Or in time spent in prayer?
Will I see You in creation,
or the faces that I pass?

I hear the words in worship,
"Here in Your presence,
I will seek Your face."*
And I long to see You,
To hear Your voice
and feel Your touch.

How will I seek You, Lord?
