“When you said, ‘Seek My face,’ my heart said to You, ‘Your face, O Lord, I shall seek’” (Psalm 27:8).
What does running in place and sitting at a desk for 10 hours have in common? They both give the appearance of working hard while remaining in one place. It begs the question, is anything really being accomplished? Thus, while some would say tenacious effort is the key to getting where you desire to go, a more compelling argument is one of passionate pursuit. Yes, running in place or sitting at a desk for long hours requires effort, but such endeavors can become habits that hold you hostage to the same ruts and familiar routines. A passionate pursuit, on the other hand, such as seeking to please the Lord in all our endeavors, moves us forward into the experience of joy, fulfillment, and the meaningfulness that we all desire.
