"I am calling you to a life of constant
communion with Me.
Basic training includes learning
to live about your circumstances,
even while interacting on that
cluttered plane of life.
You yearn for a simplified lifestyle,
so that your communication with Me
can be uninterrupted.
But I challenge you to
relinquish the fantasy
of an uncluttered world.
Accept each day just as it comes,
and find Me in the midst of it all.
from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
I can get so distracted
by the clutter
that fills my days.
I can easily blame
the circumstances for
that I allow to come
I long for
I think that there
and only there can I find
But You are here.
In the midst.
Communion with You
How much do I seek it?
Then you will call upon Me,
and you will come and pray to Me,
and I will hear and heed you.
Then you will seek Me, inquire for,
and require Me [as a vital necessity]
and find Me when
you search for Me with all your heart.
I will be found by you, says the Lord.
Jeremiah 29:12-14a amp
