Dressed to camouflage in with nature, my two main squeezes leave the house before the sun peeks over the horizon. The hunt is on. The hunt did not start this week. They have been looking for deer for weeks. Will they see a nice buck today? Will my son take a shot? This is what motivates them to lie on the cold ground and wait every morning of fall break. I don’t rise with them. I stay cozy in my bed but I do roll over and pray as I hear the door close behind them.
This is a throwback photo. 🙂
Definition of hunt: to search for something or someone very carefully and thoroughly
As my hunters drive away, I wonder…
Will we rise, wake up, get up…
Will we carefully search for, look for, seek…
Will we wait…
Will we take our shot…
What are our souls hunting for? The next best leader of our country, it will be interesting what God shows us the next four years? Acceptance? Purpose? Happiness? Fulfillment? Love?
Will we rise above our circumstances and selfish desires?
Will we seek the One who is love and holds the world in His hands?
Will we wait upon the Lord?
Will we take our shot at pointing people to Eternity?
I have found that in my life none of these things are possible apart from Christ our Savior. This spurs me on to keep studying the Word of God, the one place I find truth about who He is. I am also discovering there is goodness in the waiting. My eyes are being opened to the souls right here in my small world that need Jesus.
“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:13 ESV
I am not looking for a trophy buck although I hope like crazy my son hits the bulls eye. I just want to finish this race well. Heck, I just want to hit somewhere on the target. Life is short, let’s live it well.
Jesus we need you. We need you to rise above our circumstances and selfish desires. We need you to help us carefully and thoroughly seek you. Help us wait and see your goodness and oh Lord, open our eyes to those that need you.
