Seeking Him First

Today on the blog we have are monthly contributor Kiki, she is sharing her heart on this month's theme Seeking God. You can learn more about Kiki and her blog on the about page. 

SEEK

I'm obsessed with capturing the little moments and details in life and I will also proudly admit that. I love snapping photos of raindrops falling off leaves, steam rising from hot coffee, and my dog snoozing in the sun that streams through the windows in the morning.

I like searching for the little things in life that make life that much fuller. But do you know what I have a hard time truly seeking out?

Jesus. I forget that Jesus is in the details in life, or really, every single moment in life. That He's there, waiting to be found. But what do I do instead? I try and push Him away and think that I can do life all on my own.

But truth is, I can't. I can't do it on my own and I need Him in my life. And part of my need for Him includes my need (even if I don't know it at the moment) to seek Him in my life. To find Him when I'm hurting. To find Him when I'm joyful. And to find Him when I am lost.

I need to put Him first in my life and find Him just as I would find the little details in the viewfinder in my camera.

Jesus is there, I just have to take an extra moment to seek Him. And seek Him first and foremost in life, too.

  2. Beautiful, Kiki! Thanks so much for sharing this. I found myself last week crying out to God asking where He was....only to be gently reminded almost instantly that He is in ALL things. What a beautiful promise, one I hope I don't forget again.


    Thanks or sharing!

  4. Such a great post, Kiki!!!! I need to be reminded of this exact thing!


    Jesus Christ came to save us from this tendency of ours to go through life without being enamored by the glory of our great God. By God's grace, we are being made to be more like this Savior of ours....As He sought the Father and His glory, so should we!!!


    Happy SEEKING to you, girl!
