When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart
It was a Thursday evening and I was due to fly overseas in about thirty six hours on the Saturday morning. I decided to begin to pack and get my things together which included my Passport.
When I went to the cupboard where I usually kept my Passport, it was not there. I then thought maybe I have left it in one of my drawers. Upon looking it was not there either.
I went and found Rosemary my wife and asked if she knew where it was but she did not.
I went into my study and I looked through my desk drawers and the cupboard but to no avail, and all the while I was feeling this increasing sense of panic and worry.
Then I went back to the cupboard where I normally kept the Passport and searched again. I went through drawers, cupboards, bags and as you can imagine got more and more desperate.
I stayed up late into the night searching and looked in every place I could imagine.
When is the last time you went after God like this? Desperate and leaving nothing unturned?
Can I encourage you to grow closer to God in these days as we lead up to Pentecost?
