“And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”
(NKJV. Jeremiah 29:13. www.blueletterbible.org. )
Where's Waldo? is a series of children's books created by the British illustrator Martin Handford. The goal is to find Waldo, in a busy picture full of people. Waldo dresses in a red and white striped shirt and bobble hat, carries a wooden walking stick, and wears glasses. The books consist of a series of complex full-page illustrated pictures of hundreds of tiny people doing various amusing things. The purpose is to find Waldo among the group.
When my kids were young, they would intently study the various pictures in search of the ever hidden Waldo. My daughter, in particular, has a very meticulous personality. As she scanned the page, she seemed to have a system, scanning back and forth, concentrating on anything in red. She was very determined to find Waldo.
Often, our lives get congested with so much stuff that we can’t seem to find God. It reminds me of the Where’s Waldo? pictures. At first glance, it seems confusing and complicated to sort out all the commotion in the picture. Yet, when we zero in on something we know about Waldo, his red and white striped shirt, it helps us to focus.
Are you struggling to “find God”? At first attempt, do things seem too chaotic and overwhelming? Take a minute to focus. No, you aren’t looking for a red and white striped shirt in a crowded picture. You are searching for God Almighty. You can see God in what He has created; you can see Him when you read His Word; you can see Him in the person and character of Jesus Christ.
My daughter never gave up. She would search for Waldo until she found him. I urge you to never give up. Search for God until you truly find Him. He promises that “you will find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul”. (NKJV. Deuteronomy 4:29. www.blueletterbible.org.)
Dear God, I know it is your desire for us to earnestly seek You. Help us to avoid getting caught up in the confusion and chaos of daily life that we fail to focus, and truly find You. Amen.

It is true, there are times in life when God seems hidden in the picture of life, but when we take the time to focus we see Him clearly. Thank you for blessing the faithwriters' community and all who read this devotional message.

Well done, Marita! These are definitely words to remember every day, when our lives get so crowded with nothing and we forget what's most important.
