While on retreat a few months back, my spiritual director asked me this question: what am I seeking? (She asked me this question because it states that I am a seeker on my website and business card.) And, it was a good question for me to ponder while on my retreat. And ponder and pray I did – while walking and sitting on the shores of Lake Michigan. Here is the answer to this question as it came to me.
I am seeking to grow ever closer to the God of love. I want to continue to deepen my relationship with Him so that I can help others to have a personal relationship with our heavenly Father through a solid prayer life.
I seek to learn more about our faith.
I seek to become a better husband, father, and man of faith.
I seek to discover new and fresh ways to show the importance, relevance, and need of our faith to teens and young adults.
I seek to help others know that God is always present and with us – no matter what we do, say, or think.
I seek because I never want to be complacent or stuck with where I am. I may not always know where I am headed, but I want to try to enjoy the journey. And I am always looking forward to the surprises that God has in store for me.
I am seeking to help others find the way.
I am seeking; forever seeking.
What about you? Are you a seeker too?
