Desire Paradox

Celtic Circle

I met with a couple of friends Sunday evening. We were discussing the barriers that are sometimes encountered when one seeks to improve one’s contact with God. We were encouraging each other in our respective journeys and brainstorming ways to overcome the barriers that we each were encountering.

Somewhere in the midst of this I encountered a wonderful paradox.

The desire to find God is one that God honors and promises to fulfill for us. In fact, this desire to draw near to God is one that was planted in our hearts by God in the first place – thus setting up the Divine fulfillment!

    When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, (Jer 29:13, NRSV

    Before they call I will answer, while they are yet speaking I will hear. (Isaiah 65:24, NRSV)
