1 Chronicles 16:11 – Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!
Tommy loves adventure. Name a sport and he’s a pro in it. Name a game and he’s already played it. He’s so full of life, that even a trip to the dumpster is an adventure with him! He fills life into those around him, and kindness and gentleness follow his every word.
Tommy is autistic.
Now read the previous paragraph once again.
Not everyday is easy for him. Not everyday is easy for the ones around him. Although he maybe excellent at sport, it takes him some time to understand the logic behind the game. It requires a lot of patience and practice. He takes medicines to help him understand the world around him and to live a normal life. Yes, everyday is an adventure with Tommy because the ones around him told him so, because the ones around experience it so.
Life is always what you make and what you seek. If you seek joy, then most of your days are filled with laughter. If you seek excitement, then everything becomes an adventure. If you seek sorrow (yes, depressed people seek sorrow), then even the smallest of actions will fill you with gloom. You always find what you seek. Have you tried seeking God? You can find Him everywhere! He’s in the love of a mother, in the hug of a friend, in the words of a brother and the smile of a stranger. Yes, God is everywhere. He is hard to look for but easy to find. He is always near, never out of sight. He is beside you when you sleep, ahead of you when you’re lost; surrounding you when you need strength and within you when need Him the most!
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.”
My Lord is that one pearl of great value. He’s worth leaving the world behind for. Go find Him and seek Him continually!
