Come for Me

I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.  -Psalms 119:176

What a powerful word. Calling to the Lord to come after us.  To seek us.

Seek us in our lost-ness.
Seek us in our wandering.
Seek us in our own mess we created.

The assurance we have as followers of Jesus is that the good shepherd will not leave or forsake us.  The key is the memory of the truth of the commandments.  We know what is required.  We have studied, learned, memorized and repeated God's word.  It is buried in our hearts.  Buried deep enough that it is not lost when we wander.  This is different than throwing away and rejecting.  This is the gradual loss that happens through loss of focus and distraction.

How beautiful the cry "Seek thy servant"!

Seek your people, oh God.  We are often lost and wandering, and our hearts are yours!
