Search For God

Search For God

Search For God

How does one go about searching for the God of our dreams?

You know what I’m talking about: the God that will solve all our problems, the one that will answer our questions and give us peace of mind, the God that will keep us safe and secure.

I think we have to search for God one step at a time. The first step might be to open our hearts to Him so that we can receive His mercy and kindness.

Another action we can take is to be kind and caring to other people, as we would have God be kind to and care about us.

Maybe we have to learn to search for God in new places. Perhaps it is a matter of using our imaginations to help us divine a new way to find God.

Can you imagine that God is always with you and that you don’t really have to search for Him at all? Maybe what we have to do is to start by accepting His presence.

Perhaps if we imagine that God is standing right next to us we will begin to understand how to act with God in our midst. Maybe it is a matter of accepting that He calls upon us to be all that we can be, and to do good works. I like to image that this is the way things will be in God’s presence, what about you?

Can you conceive of how wonderful and inspired you will feel when you discover that your search for God may be over, that He was with you all the time?

In my dreams, in my imagination, I feel Him near me. It gives me peace of mind. It allows me to consider myself a person of faith. It gives me the inspiration to go on with my life. What about you, is your search for God almost over? Can you feel His grace? Can you accept that you are in His presence? Perhaps what we have to do is to accept the fact that He is always with us. Sometimes we have to use a little imagination to believe in what we cannot see or understand. Sometimes we just have to believe to make it so.
