“THREE… TWO… ONE… ready or not hear I come” – Do you remember playing Hide N’ Seek as a kid? It was the best! I have to admit; I was a great “hider”, I would climb and hide up in trees, I would cover myself in leaves and brush to camouflage myself- whatever it took to win. But I was a horrible, “seeker”. I hated trying to find people; if I was looking for someone for more than a few minutes I just wanted to give up.
Playing games as a kid is one thing; but I’m often shocked to see how often some of these habits from my childhood creep into my spiritual life. In this case, finding God. From the beginning of time man has needed God, but now more than ever it seems harder to find Him in our daily lives. The world seems to be speeding up with an ever-growing TO-DO List, and more and more gadgets and technology to distract us from our spiritual longings.; if we seek God but get distracted or aren’t satisfied right away, we have a million apps, pins, tweets, and posts to distract us. In today’s video we’re going to talk about the basic truth that should always encourage us to never tire of seeking to encounter God in your daily life, and that truth is that He wants to be found.

4 Ways To Take This Offline:
- Find time each day to thank God for the active role He plays in your life – even when we don’t see it, or God doesn’t move in the ways we want Him to, a grateful heart disposes us not only to receive more, but share what we have been given.
- Steal time away this week from your busy days for 5 minutes of silence and use that time to reflect on where God has been (or tried) to be present to you that day.
- Make a point each morning/day to open up Scripture before you open your favorite social media app.
- Share one way you’ve come to know Christ more this week with a friend, family member or coworker this week.
