Seek Him Wholeheartedly

Hello! I hope you’re doing well. πŸ™‚ ❀ Happy Sunday to you! Last week, I really enjoyed beginning this Psalm 119 series, and I’ll be continuing that today.

While I was searching for an image for this post, I came across this sweet Vietnamese girl and couldn’t get her smile out of my head! I knew I had to share it on today’s post πŸ™‚

Psalm 119:2

“Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied)
are they who keep His testimonies,
and who seek, inquire for and of Him
and crave Him with the whole heart.”

There’s something that I absolutely adore about this verse. Look at that last line! “…and crave Him with the whole heart.Do you realize what a beautiful thing it is to the Lord when you and I crave Him? ❀ The word ‘crave’ means “to feel a powerful desire for something.”

When your utmost desire is to be with Him and to follow His will for your life, everything else falls into place.

He knows what you’re going through today. He knows what’s on your heart and mind, and He knows how to enable you with His peace and strength so that you can accomplish the plans He has for you.

Keep His testimonies. Inquire for the Lord. When you and I give Him the #1 place in our hearts and lives, He honors our adoration with His blessed guidance.

Allow Him to be your Great Shepherd. ❀

I’m praying that you have a beautiful rest of the weekend! πŸ™‚

Thanks so much for sharing Maggie! Our faiths have many things in common. What you said at the end about allowing Him to be our great shepherd reminded me of a story I heard from Aida Azlin (a Muslim youtuber) that she got from When You Hear Hoofbeats Think of A Zebra (on my tbr haha). It goes something like this: imagine you walk past a herd of sheep when suddenly their gaurd dogs start attacking you. One by one they start running – what do you do? The natural answer is um get some rocks to throw, run, do anything but it’s not enough and the dogs attack. Aida went on to explain the answer and it was “to call on the shepherd.” As simple as that. Call o the shepherd for he has complete control and guidance over his farm and animals. The same goes to our world. When we’re faced with a problem, we have to try everything possible and call on God for guidance. Crave turning to Him and spilling your emotions to the One who knows what’s in our hearts. Thank you Maggie – I like coming to your posts for reminders despite our different faiths. πŸ™‚
