Walk with Me - Seek Me


...not only have I come to guide you; lead and teach you, but I have come to walk with you ... allow Me to walk with you. Understand that even though you do not deem yourself perfected I will still walk with you ... So come and enjoy the journey for it will be a great adventure in these days...But determine that you will experience it with great joy and with great peace; for this is My kingdom within you, says the Lord God Almighty. -M. BURNS

My Father God, has been speaking with me about seeking Him . . . it has been a really strong theme the past few weeks. Just this morning I felt the urge to go down to the beach . . . so many other things I could be doing/needed to catch up on, but they will still be there - didn't have any appointments except apparently one I didn't know about ... the one that was not on MY calendar -- spending an hour at the beach with my Lord. I have to share that the practical and logical in me has won the battle for so many years . . . and this is what the revelation comes down to, for me at least: Love is not logical.


So as I walked along the beach, with my camera this time :-), the ocean spray misting my face, sweat dripping down my back at 8:30 in the morning (don't want you to think it's all glamorous on this tropical island :-), (Oh and I had my shirt on inside out all morning too :-), I found myself looking for beautiful shots of the ocean:



and whatever else I might find. I walked to a point where I couldn't go any further and it was beautiful.

I sat there enjoying the moment and the majesty all round me. I strolled back to the car a lot slower than I had come out ... I was seeking ... looking down around me, noticing so many things I
didn't see the first pass:





a bunch of hermit crabs feasting on their breakfast ...







the shell of a blue lobster ...




the path of a turtle who came up to lay her eggs ...




a log that had once been alive and now serves other purposes ...


a lone flower amidst the dirt and grass...

I had to walk with the journey to be able to see those things - and to slow down enough to look around . . . and I know that it what He is saying to me right now - look around you, in every day life. Look for me and if you do, you'll find Me - sure, it'll be something different about Me every time but that is because I am so infinite - so beyond finding out .... "mystery is the veil of God's face" as I read in Streams in the Desert the other day.

Lord, may I be on the lookout for You, Your handiwork, Your touch, Your presence in my life.

Kim, this is just great and just perfect for a fellow lover of God who struggles with slowing down and not letting the logical override the necessity of spending time with God. Thanks for sharing your heart and the exhortation!!
