It may be a question of where God is: “out there” or “in here” OR both?
When we learn how to look, how to really look and therefore to see, we realize that God shines through everything—the ordinary and the extraordinary: the then, the here, the now, and without doubt, in that which is to come.
I think I agree with the Buddhist contemplative! It takes faith to let myself unfold to what is, moment by moment. Our faith assures us that God is the Presence that goes with us and gives us rest on the way (Exod. 33:14).
Nothing that we do or don’t do can separate us from Your Presence, Lord! Thank You! Thank You!
