This past week I have learned that seeking God can come in many different ways.
I have been recently blessed; hubby that has provided a home workout area for all of us. Therefore, I am seeking God to encourage my heart to get in that workout area and use the machines. God has been generous allowing this is be a part of our lives.
The Lord has placed this on my heart; I must seek Him in all things. Even in the area of my health, rather, especially in this area. I have become too complacent.
The verse that we have been studying on this week was Psalm 105:4 – Seek the Lord, and His strength; Seek His face forever.
It has been extremely important in my life because I have been battling laziness in regards to my health. I need to get back into better shape, for my health, and the example I am setting for my children.
So, not only I am having to seek the Lord, I have to also seek His strength, because I so cannot do this exercise stuff, eating better, and being more healthy without His help.
Maybe not as deep as I would have thought that this verse would take me this week, but there you have it; the truth that I am unable to complete even the smallest (yet, the largest and hardest) tasks without the Lord’s strength.
Also, knowing that as I seek His strength as I do this better health thing, I must continue to do so or I will fall right back into old habits. It does not take long to do that!
Here is the newest verse that I plan on working on for the next 7 days:
Psalm 37:4 – Delight yourself in the Lord; and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”

There are so many wonderful verses still yet to come, I hope you continue to join in with me here as I spend Midnights with Jesus.
As promised, there will be a linkup for last week’s verse and you will find it below.
