My question is this, if God is so close, why is God so hard to find?
– Bernadette, England
Imagine a very good friend that you have not seen for a while. Imagine all the fun times you have had together, all the laughs. These memories are always within you, yet if you choose not to focus on them, you will not feel or experience them. Regardless of how great your relationship is, you can go days, even weeks without thinking of her. Yet, if you for one second thought of her, all those emotions would begin to return, and the more you focus on them, the more experiences and emotions you would feel and recall.
Imagine your heart. It works every day, every hour, every minute, and every second to keep you alive. During the day, how often do you think of your heart? You could say you owe your life to your heart. Yet, how often do you thank it? How often do you send it love? How often are you loving to it? Regardless of what little focus you put on your heart, how close is your heart to you? How hard is it to find your heart?
God, as is your heart, is within you now. God has gifted you free will. Thus, you are free to place your focus on what you choose to. God has never left you, nor will He ever leave you. In the moment, you have the choice of what to focus on. Focus on feelings of loneliness and you will experience their expressions. Focus on God’s love for you and you will experience this energy flowing through you. In the moment, focus on judging a brother or sister and you will feel the heaviness of judgment weighing you down. Or focus on having compassion for and serving your fellow brother or sister and you will feel love lifting you up as it flows through you.
