There are so many times that we go blindly in search of things, people, & ourselves, not realizing that God is there, even when we feel that He’s far away. However, God is very much near, we are just unable to find the “You Are Here” spot in our daily walk. God is around, but we are lost. Just think of the times when you’ve stared at the directory in the mall & the store you were looking for was around the next corner. That’s how it is with God---He’s right there.
It’s definitely overwhelming (& at times frustrating) to be lost, looking at a map, & being unsure of where you are going! However, “You Are Here” & able to find God in the midst of being lost--He’s right there waiting for you to find Him in what you’re going through. Similar to when we find that store we’re looking for on the directory & how relieved we become---how much more relieved we’ll be when we realize that God is a consistent part of our map of life, & is right there waiting for us, loving us unconditionally?
Until next time.
