The Hunt

Our family had a Scavenger hunt. It was a lot of fun. All the girls, left clues for the guys around town, the goal in the end was to find the girls!  Our family has a lot of good memories in this town. We've had our children here, and they've grown up here, they've been married here, and they are having their own children here. We are building memories here, and it means a lot to me that I can get together with my daughter in laws and share memories of life. They know my sons and the journeys that have impacted them.
So, the scavenger hunt sent my husband and my sons down memory lane. They visited the park where my son's wedding pictures were, the park where my son was married, the hospital where my son's daughter was born. There were many other visits to memorable places, and we ended at a corner ice cream diner, an old time favorite of my husband and I.
The girls and I had a lot of fun coming up with the clues and just thinking about the guys running all over town looking for us! It's nice to be pursued. It's good to be hunted for by the ones that loves us.
Of course, it reminded me of how God is pursuing me.  He sent His Son to show me just how serious He is about the hunt.
A couple days ago as I was praying I asked God to give me the verse I needed for the day, to please speak to my heart. He gave me Micah 2:13

"Then I, God, will burst all confinements and lead them out into the open.  They'll follow their King. I will be out in front leading them."

I love how God promises to burst ALL confinements! He will do this in me, and in you too.  In Proverbs 20:27  I read this,

"The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the innermost parts of his being."

Just like the guys searched for us girls. God searches even more so for me. He searches all the innermost parts of my being, to the point of bursting ALL confinements! And, leading me into the open. As I said, I asked God to give me the verse I needed that day, and He did.
Jesus, Say That Again, You will burst all confinements!
