God looks for Wally...
Yesterday I wrote about "Where's Wally?" and how sometimes discovering God can be tricky. However, there is another side to this and that it is perhaps not so much about us trying to find God, as rather God finding us.
In the Bible, we read parables of the women seeking for her lost coin (Luke 15:8-10) and the Shepherd leaving the 99 sheep in order to find the one that was lost (Luke 15:3-7). God is seeking for all of us who are lost and needing to find our way back Home - just like the young prodigal in Luke 15:11-32.
Sadly, there are people who don't want to be 'found' by God. We run and try to hide from Him, because we misunderstand why He wants to find us. Being found by Jesus is never a bad thing - it is always a blessing and it will always change our lives!
Enjoying being 'found' by GRACE,
