it's a cinderella love

This morning, Mama Sandi spoke about the joy of the seeking heart. The Lord promises over and over again in Scripture that those who seek Him diligently WILL find Him.

"Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near" - Isaiah 55:6
Long for the longing – never lose the child-wonder and joy of seeking Christ. Be like the princess in Song of Solomon – asking everyone in sight, “Have you seen Him? Have you seen the one who my soul loves?” And then rejoice with joy overflowing when we do find Him. Because here’s the real truth: He loves us and is seeking us MORE than we love and are seeking Him. We love because He first loved us.

As funny as it sounds, when she read that verse, a line from one of more favorite love songs came to mind: “…I wanted to ring out the bells and fling out my arms and to sing out the news – I have found him! I have found him!”

THAT's the attitude we should have towards our God. THAT's the joy we should feel every time we find a new attribute in His Word. It’s a sweet and beautiful picture of our own heavenly love story.

More love to Thee, Oh Christ!
