“But in their distress they turned to the LORD, the God of Israel, and sought him, and he was found by them.” 2Chronicles 15:4
We look for so many things each day, don’t we? When we can’t find something, we stress and worry yet when our children lose something, stress and worry, we do our very best to help them through their anxiety, comforting them by letting them know that it’s okay, they’ll find what they are looking for, what’s missing will turn up. As moms, we travel around the house searching for the toy that appears to have hidden on its own, for the other flip flop that looks as if it hopped away or for the homework that is by your child’s every recollection, complete and thought to have been placed in the backpack. Lost things….sigh. Usually found, sometimes not.
We don’t have to scramble when looking for God. He is always there, always waiting for us and always available. He may not be visible, He may not always speak to us in an audible voice, but He is present. We find Him in prayer, in the scriptures and within our hearts and spirit. He is near and can always be found–for the big things and the small, and for everything in between. We just need to look.
So look for Him today in all that you are doing, Mom.
He may even know where that flip flop is hiding.
