BigRead13 Day 43 : Seek

Day 43’s Big Read post is here.

Matthew 7:7 is the set reading for today:

Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.

We’re asked if we take time to seek after God, or are we content as we are?

I don’t think with me it’s so much content – rather it comes back to the idea of being #notbusy. When we’re too busy we settle for second best, rather than striving after best when that could take just that last little bit of free time – or have to squeeze out something else essential. I tried to make time for the Lent addresses this week, I really did. The first was excellent. I missed the other two though.  Am hopeful of Maundy Thursday though…

Lord, give me the time to seek after you. When I’m busy, let me look for you in the busyness. When I can make the time, help me to be not busy and look for you in the calm too.
