FINDING GOD...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

By
Title Insurance with Patriot Land Transfer, Inc.

If we are functioning correctly, and following closely the directions in our ‘INSTRUCTION MANUALS’...we should all be searching to FIND GOD...

 

In fact, TRUTH BE KNOWN, IT IS REALLY GOD WHO SEARCHES FOR US...!!!

 

GOD...The Creator of the Universe...billions of galaxies, billions of stars...each star a solar system similar to ours...ARE WE WORTH SEARCHING FOR...??? APPARENTLY GOD THINKS SO...!!!

 

Let’s face it, no matter how smart we think we are, are we so presumptuous to think we can understand or comprehend or grasp the magnanimity of WHO GOD IS...???

 

Yet GOD LOVES US SO MUCH HE BECAME HUMAN...so we could more easily relate to Him...and PERHAPS EVEN FIND HIM...Though He is not really far from any one of us...!!!

 

I wanted to express that previous paragraph in my own words and from my own heart, but for those who need Scriptural Evidence:

 

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send  his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” JOHN 3:16f

AND

 

God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.” ACTS 17:27

 

Mother Teresa, now SAINT TERESA OF CALCUTTA, found God in the dying and marginalized of Calcutta, India. SAINT FRANCIS Of ASSISI found God in THE POOR AND IN GOD’S CREATION...!!!

 

We can find God ALL AROUND US...RIGHT WHERE WE ARE...RIGHT HERE...RIGHT NOW...BUT...WE MAY HAVE TO LOOK FOR THE FACE OF JESUS in that person at the deli counter at the supermarket...or our spouse or our children crying out for attention...or the teller at the bank...or listening to the story of a stranger we bumped into...or watching that tear jerking video on facebook...or promising to pray for a cancer patient or hospitalized friend...WELL...YOU GET THE PICTURE...!!!

 

We have 23 more days OF ADVENT until CHRISTMAS...Let us use that opportunity to truly celebrate GOD AMONG US and WE WILL ALL HAVE A LOVING AND GREAT CHRISTMAS...!!!

When we see others and feel judgemental towards them because of the way they look or the situation they are in we Christians need to remember: ARE WE WORTH SEARCHING FOR...??? APPARENTLY GOD THINKS SO...!!! and so is that person we made the snap judgement about.

Bob,

I agree wholeheartedly, and we can learn from those experiences how God wishes us to change and become more like HIM...!!!

Fran, mother Teresa took God's command to love and to serve our fellow man very seriously and leaves us a great example to follow.

Mike,

Finding God can be easy...Staying close to Him can be challenging, although He stays close to us...!!!

Thanks,   Fran
