{searching} for ME

{my heart--convicted recently... sharing}

Have you ever heard the expression "I just need to find myself"? 

Maybe you have been there, searching for who you are. leaving family and just looking. searching God's creation for YOU.
Or maybe you have not physically left your life in this pursuit. but emotionally there are days when you are "checked out" and unavailable. [I am pointing any  fingers at myself!]

People searching. hunting. rummaging. pursuing. for SELF. {Who am I?}
a quest of self-discovery.

Our world is filled with these people. We have a pre-occupation with SELF.

And God says we are FOOLS.

A fool hath no delight in understanding, 
but that his heart may discover itself. 
Proverbs 18:2

Being a Wife is a full-time responsibility. being a Mommy is hard work. You know this. We don't have time to "find ourselves." [and if we tried, that would make us fools!] We do not have time to be "checked out."
We don't have to. 

If Jesus has you, then you ARE found. {JOY}

Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. Luke 15:6
 we are   {FOUND}
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one. John 10:27-30
we are  {OWNED}
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Proverbs 8:17
we are  {LOVED}
I must REST in HIM. in WHO He is. in what He has done for me. in what He can do through me.
...and be contented in knowing that where I am is not where I will always be.

I pray you have a BLESSED weekend!

When I first began this blog, I had a sequence of posts started about who and what I am in Christ. I will be {prayerfully} be continuing them for the next few months and posting them on Fridays. Because HE is... I can be!
