Somebody said “Just seek and find”
It seemed like such a waste of time
I just really didn’t care
If there was anything out there
What I found and didn’t know
God wouldn’t easily let me go
He pursued me with His love
How to resist, where else to go?
Only He knew what it would take
How could I know what was at stake?
The love He showed me was the key
I opened the door so cautiously
Why would He want to talk to me
I’d treated Him so horribly
I humbly asked Him to come in
Would He forgive me all my sins?
He’d knocked and waited patiently
This God who had created me
Then so amazingly
I felt His love envelop me
My love just grew by leaps and bounds
As He rejoiced with me
I had been found!
I was a skeptic for such a long time. I was in
my thirties when I first opened a Bible. I
completed eight years of schooling that
focused on God morning, noon and night. I
left not knowing what God was all about.
Throughout those eight years, not once did I
see a Bible.
When I left, the last thing I wanted was to
hear about God ever again.
Many years later while I was living in the
jungles of Belize, a lady left me a box full of
tapes in front of my door with a Bible. I was
not interested. It sat unopened for at least
Finally, one day I did open the box and looked
in the Bible. It didn’t matter that the Bible was
given out by a cult. The truth of what I read in
the Bible penetrated my soul.
God will go through any lengths to show you
that He loves you, to show you that He wants
I have no doubt that if I had not decided to
read His Word, He would have found
another way to introduce Himself. God never
gives up on us.
He will knock until the very end. He is so
ready to forgive, to make you His child.
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock.
If anyone hears my voice and opens the
door, I will come into him and eat with
him, and he with me.”
