Where is God? Sunday Glimpses

by Nan Jones   @NanJonesAuthor

Father, I desire to be set apart for You. I know that's a tall order and not one I make lightly. I'm not even sure if I know what that means - to be set apart, consecrated to You. 

What I do know is that I desire for You to be my first love. I desire for my life to reflect Your righteousness - to be a light in the darkness around me. Mold me Lord. Melt me, and transform me into Your likeness for Your glory. I find my completeness in You and You alone. You are everything to me. 

Thank You for making Yourself known to me - not only me, but all of those who seek You. You promise that when we seek You we will be found by YOU Lord! That still amazes me. Thank You for pursuing us with Your love. 

I pray for my friends who feel that same restlessness in their spirits - that feeling that there is more. We desire to walk in the full understanding of who You are. Help us understand Your mysteries. Enlighten the eyes of our heart to grasp Your Truth. Give us courage and fortitude to seek You with our whole hearts - no holding back, no agendas, no lukewarmness in any areas of our lives. We desire to know You fully. 

May our praise be a sweet aroma to You for You are our God and we are Your people. We love You Lord. Together we exalt Your holy Name.
