I recently came across this quote, and it got me thinking. “The pure in heart see God in everything.”
Hmm…could this be true? There is so much suffering in the world, and sometimes it is difficult to see God in it.
But after contemplating for a time, I realized that I usually feel the presence of God most when I am walking through a difficult trial. He definitely is always there to help and strengthen me.
There is a reason for the problems we face. A good one! Normally God uses these times to sanctify us, and to make us more like Himself.
If we look, the Lord is in everything else! Our families, homes, and food are all gifts from God. Walking in nature draws me close to Him, too. He has given us such precious gifts in His creation.
I can even see Him in the cities, where the creation of humans is on display. While I would much rather spend my time in the country, I do recognize that we are only able to create because He does. People are an image of God, and I can see evidence of this everywhere.
While sometimes it feels like my heart has a long way to go, I do want to see God in everything. It brings me comfort to know that He is near.
I hope you have a lovely day with your families, friends. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!
