Seeking God out


When I sleep in God’s embrace,
or look upon His own dear face,
I know that I can be at peace
and that my worrying can cease.

For when I seek His presence out
it matters not who is about
or what the world is up to next,
as I have found the very best.

In His lap I find new strength
to help me go another length,
my sorrow ends and joy’s restored
as God and I come to accord.

But all of this takes discipline
as I reach to find God deep within
the midst of this chaotic life
with distractions plentiful and rife.

I need to seek a quiet space
to find God in this time and place,
I need to make Him a priority
and seek Him out intentionally.
