As I was driving down loop 12 on an early Saturday morning, listening to 94.9 KLTY, one of my favorite songs came on the radio. First by Lauren Daigle. 94.9 is a contemporary gospel station that provides it's listeners with great music and conversations about God, spirituality and well being. It got me thinking, Who do I seek first in life? A line from Lauren Daigle's song goes as follow "I want to seek you out, I want to seek you... First... More than anything I want, I want you... First". Obviously she was referring to God. Every time I listen to that song, It gives me chills down my spine. Maybe I have been seeking to put first the wrong things in life.
Prior to moving back home(Texas), I was always preoccupied with work, out of work activities and I seldom made time for God, family and friends. I still considered myself a bonafide christian even though, I may not have attended church every Sunday nor do I read my bible religiously. I constantly told myself that salvation is personal. As long as I have conversations every now and then with God, I should be good to go. Then I moved back home and all I kept hearing was you need to prioritize the lord, blasé, blasé. I listened but I never took it in because, I was stuck in my own view point that, I did not have to follow the status quo to be a real christian. I thought I was putting God first when in reality he was always at the back of my mind crowded with so many worries. Fast forward to a few months, I finally got my car back and the first time driving it, First by Lauren Daigle comes on the radio. My mom must have stationed 94.9 in my car to trap me lol and till date, that's the only radio station I listen to. Anyways, as I was listening to the song, I questioned myself if I really was putting God first in my life. From then on, I decided that, maybe it was time to push my worries to the back of my mind and bring him forward. I may not read my bible as often as I should, I don't go to church every Sunday, but I do pray on a daily basis and still believe salvation is personal. Most importantly, I decided to seek the man upstairs and put him first.
With that said, who and what do you seek first? Please share your story below.
