Seek Ye My Face (Poem)

Updated on October 28, 2013
Looking higher than life!
Looking higher than life!

Seek and Find

Heavenly Father, O Adonai,

Consider, listen and regard me

Your child, and servant,

As I call out and pray aloud

I ask that You would favor my petition,

And be mindful, and graciously

Grant and respond to my request,

You require and counsel

To search after You,

By prayer and in worship,

To desire and seek for Your favor,

Your grace and unmerited kindness

To desire Your countenance, and

All of the features, and expressions

Indicative of Your presence,

My emotions, will, and

Even my intellect, are raised, and

I agree with Your request,

My heart answers back,

Your presence Holy Father will

I move towards, and I will do

What You have requested of me,

I will seek Your face and I will find You

As I search for You with all of my heart

As Your Word has promised.

Amen

      Love it! Great reminder of who God is. We ask but He gives what is best for us and it may not always be the answer we were seeking. When we seek Him and delight in Him, our hearts are filled with Him.

      Good morning, icbenefield" we have to make the effort to remind ourselves of who it He is, it doesn't always surface as it should that His face is holy and because of the precious blood of Jesus we can approach His throne of grace and have audience with Him. Thanks for dropping by. Have a great week.
