When We Seek Him

I just listened to my granddaughter’s Christmas pageant and heard a beautiful new Christmas song by Shawna Edwards. Here’s a video of another choir singing “When We Seek Him.”

The words to the chorus really struck me:
If miles lay between us, then I’d walk to Jesus.
O’er mountain and desert, I’d follow that star.
But He doesn’t ask us to journey so far.
For He will be with us, wherever we are,
When we seek Him.

Sometimes it seems that it would be easier to make a long pilgrimage, or offer a complex mission service, once and be done. But we are called to do something harder: live with Jesus and walk with him, day by day, moment by moment. And we are assured that he will be with us—not when we live flawlessly, but when we seek him. Always.
