The Question of the Day

How do you know that God is near? Or if you don't think he is near, where do you think he is?

We do not need to find God, we only need to recognize that God is already in our lives. God is continually working in our lives, but many of us do not feel or see this work. What is offered is the humble quest of a God who, in the person of Jesus, comes to reveal His love and beg our love in return. Communication with God is essential, just as it is in any relationship. Communication is how we make the connection and build our human relationships; we learn to connect the same way with God through the communication called prayer. Communication is not so much what we have to give God, but is more a living with God, a meeting with one who loves us unconditionally, a personal relationship in which it is truly God who does the giving, the giving of Himself for us. The experience of being fully present in this personal relationship with God could be described as an altered state of awareness .
Each of us needs to fully grasp and understand just how much we are loved by God. Because of His love for us, God is intimately concerned about every aspect of our lives. We cannot just acknowledge God intellectually, but we must feel His loving presence. We must acknowledge His presence within us, and understand the sacrifice He made in dying on the cross in order to demonstrate the extent of His great love.

Peace to you.
