“When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you’re not disappointed” 
(Jeremiah 29:12-14 MSG).

I’ll listen.

You’ll find me.

I’ll make sure you’re not disappointed

Thank You Lord for listening.
When I call on You, You hear me.
To know You hang onto my every word – the whining, the tearful moans, the times I can’t find how to express myself – You know and You listen.
Thank You Lord for letting me find You.
When I come looking for You – You are there.
When I can’t find You and wonder if You left – You stay with me.
When I turn my back on You and drift into ego driven pleasures – You watch over me.
Thank You Lord for forgiving me and patiently waiting for my heart to turn back to You.
When I once again intentionally seek You and realize You are the true desire of my heart, I find you waiting, smiling for me.
When I return like the prodigal child, You run to greet me with open arms.
Your promises strengthen, comfort, and refresh me.
Your promises fill me with hope.
A God who keeps His word – God of the Word
You are a God who keeps Your promises and I am so grateful for Your unceasing commitment to our souls.
