Often I feel like I am playing hide n seek with God. Sometimes it feels like He is hidden from me, but when my mind is open to seeing God in all things, I see these little messages all around me. I don’t have to seek very hard to find Him.
When I’m faced with adversity, I read a message on my prayer table that says I may have troubles in this world but take courage because He has conquered the world. He tells me this so that I may have peace in Him, John 16:33.
When I need reassurance that I have conquered the enemy with His help, He tells me He is my refuge and His arms are everlasting, that He has driven the enemy out of my way, Deuteronomy 33:27
When I am afraid, He journeys with me into the woods to name and face my fears and then He tells me to not be anxious but come to Him in prayer and His peace will guard my heart and mind and He will give me all that I need, Philippians 4:6-7, 4:19
When I am feeling hopeless, He reveals a tiny purple flower to me in the midst of a bed of dead leaves below my feet, reminding me that new life and a new journey is upon me.
When I just need to know He’s there, I walk outside and He paints a picture and sings a song to me through the beauty of nature and the sound of the birds.
When I need to hear joy, He shows me His presence in the laughter and joy of my children.
When I need to know He is on my journey with me, He places an image upon my window in my car to let me know He is guiding my journey each step of the way.
Through the daily messages He sends me, whether it’s a Bible verse I read, a passage from a book that speaks to me, something I hear on the radio at the right time, something a friend may say, the beauty and sound of nature or my children, I know that if I am always open and seeking Him, He will always let me know He is there carrying, guiding and taking care of me.
