To search is to find for self
To search is to strive to acheive
To search is to provide greatness in one’s life
To search is to obtain satisfaction that’s self serving
But that is not the search that I desire
1 You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
To search is to strive to give
To search is to provide hope to other’s life
To search is to obtain satisfaction in serving
And to search to to open one’s self up to HIM
9 The heart is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure.
Who can understand it?
10 “I the Lord search the heart
and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
according to what their deeds deserve.”
11 Like a partridge that hatches eggs it did not lay
are those who gain riches by unjust means.
When their lives are half gone, their riches will desert them,
and in the end they will prove to be fools.
To search is to be honest
To search is to be aware of one’s weaknesses
To search is to find gain only through the Lord
22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. 23 I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.

Rhonda, I like your perspective and the evolution of thought, guided by scripture. Your FMF neighbor.
Thanks so much for your encouragement to keep going. I know my goal is not to reach the millions but I know God’s goal is to use me to reach the masses. I really appreciate it!
