The Search..

Updated on May 21, 2014

I went looking for God.. hoping to find...
the penetrating thought ..
which sought escape... from my mind

I watched the tiny flower .. grow to the sun..
I saw the tiny fish .. it was having such fun
swimming and enjoying.. all in it's bowl..
I seen the mother horse..
keeping watch over her foal

I turned over a rock .. God,
were you there..?
I know.. I heard you calling..
telling me where..

If only I would listen ..
to the voice within..
when you refuse to see..God
now that is a sin..

That's when I heard....Look harder my son ..
do not search in the skies....I am here beside you ..
open your eyes.. open your heart,
know that we... were never apart ...

look deep inside you
and you will find...I was always here ..
in the soul of your mind

      Really beautiful, Michael. He is omnipresent. We do tend to search so hard at times and then realize that sometimes if we are still and quiet, we can hear from Him and know that He was and is there always.

      Up and more and away

      God bless

      Just beautiful. People tend to search so hard for the answers that are there all along. Easy to forget God really is everywhere.

      Beautiful. Sometimes He seems so far away, but He's really there all the time, it's us who turn away.

      Very well done my friend. How can something always be in the way and yet never in the way? Thank you for a very nice morning meditation.
