Where do you find God or do you?

If we fill the mind, our very being, with an expectancy of God we will see his manifestation, in the wind, the sun, the earth, the flowers, and all inhabitants of the earth. Most importantly however, we will find within ourselves the knowledge that we are one with the universe itself, and that there is a divine order to all things. Go therefore to your house of worship if you wish, or stay away if you wish, the choice is your own, but never consider yourself or your way better than that of another. We are all children of the universe and while we may not understand it now, be assured that there is a good reason why we are, where we are, at this moment. Who out there agrees or disagrees?

Actually i agree with you as you mentioned, God is in everywhere like bible says Proverbs 15:3 - the eye of the Lord is in all places. His presence can we feel everywhere you are. As a children of God, He always holding us for any danger... what we need to do is trust Him and beleive Him... see you around

Well said! I am in complete agreement with you until you reach your final conclusion. I am not al so sure that there is a good or for that matter any reason that we are where we are at this moment. The universe is immense and we can not claim to be its children until we stick a toe in the water and venture off this small backwater planet.

Hi Chiang_Mai_boy, Thank you for responding. I do not think of God as a person, except that we can see him in all people if we look hard enough. I have always felt however that there is a reason why we are here and that we existed before coming here. Sometime I believe, mankind will venture off this planet but apparently we're not ready for that yet. Looking back on life after just 71 years here, I realize just how small we are in the grand scheme of things, but I also see things working out for the best. I think of it as divine order. Blessings.

I totally agree, specially with the part about your way being better than others. I don't get why religious people fight each other on whose truth is more true. I say respect each other, cause that is what's important. I am a catholic by birth, but I don't follow a specific religion now that I'm older. I just know in myself that there is someone greater than me who created me. That the universe and my life is a gift, how I intend to live my life, and to give thanks to my God is my choice.

A useful analogy here would be elementary education, where you have the youngest souls in Kindergarten, and the older developing spirits about to move on to High School. None of these unfolding souls belittle their younger brothers or sisters for their inexperience or lack of knowledge. Its taken for granted, that with time all will graduate the school of hard knocks with Honors!

-I find God in the quiet times as I have time to reflect and think. -I find God when I read the Bible for myself and ask Him what it means. -I find God when I speak the Words of the Bible over myself, especially the things that I know I cannot do of my own accord like control my mouth. -I find God when I see nature and all that has been created. -I find God when I ask for help even in the simplest of things like what color to paint a wall in my house. As I praise Him for being the Architect of the Universe and the Artist of nature, He comes up along side of me and points me to even a simple paint color. -I find God when I struggle at my job and cannot find an answer. If I get quiet and ask Him for help, the help comes but many times I do not recognize it then. Sometimes it takes me years to recognize that the answer came and was a perfect answer. -I find God in my weaknesses, like when I struggled with dyslexia for 50 years. It turned out that as I prayed for help, God gave me the help I needed even though I did not know I was dyslexic. I found later that what God had taught me day by day was actually written in a book of how to teach dyslexic students many many years later. His answers did not stop there as He led me to a doctor who worked with my eye muscles (vision therapy) and I no longer suffer from dyslexia. -I find God when my heart sings for joy or cries in pain. His joy and His comfort have encompassed me many times. At one point in my life when filled with grief, His love so overpowered me that I cannot explain the beauty of it in human words. -I find God when I take my eyes off the turmoil around me and fix my heart on Him and His goodness. -I find God as I reflect on all that Jesus did for me on the cross and the sacrifice He and God the Father made just for me. -I find God as he provides for me everyday (many times I have to ask Him to point that out to me because I am too blind to see that on my own). -I find God as he directs me to those who should be in my life. I do not have to "save" them, I only have to love them and that is work enough in itself. -I find God when I ask Him to help me to see someone through His eyes and not through my own. Over a period of time I find that my heart is much more tolerant of even the most unlovely person, a person that would usually drive me right up the wall. -I find God when I ask Him to guide me to the Church I should be in. He did that on two separate occasions and now He has guided me to be at home for this season. -I find God when I pray for someone who has hurt me for God to bless them and He does. No matter where I am, if I am willing, God is there with me but I usually have to ask Him to make that clear to me because I have a hard time knowing that without His help.

i totally agree. It's not an accident that we are here on hearth. Someone greater than us has prepared something for each one long before we were born. God has been constantly constructing the perfect masterpiece for each of us. I find God in my silence especially during my prayertime. I find God when I go to work, especially when I do things according to His will. Tonight, I find God in you, through the words you've said, it reminded me of my journey as a Christian believer and follower of His ways and acts. God bless!
