Lately I’ve experienced this amazing revelation. My whole life I’ve been praying, looking for and wanting God to talk directly to me so I could see, feel and touch him. I always thought their was something wrong with the way I was praying because some of the time during my prayers my mind would wander. I always silently criticized myself for the way I prayed because God didn’t talk with me the way I wanted him to.
The other day I finally realized that God was and has always been talking and walking with me every step of my life. God is in the simple and free things in my everyday life. God is in a smile and an open ear. He’s in the kindness we notice and the sadness we feel. God is in the love we feel and in all of the beautiful things around us.
My revelation may sound elementary to most but it feels really good to me. Even though I’ve heard God is everywhere many times I don’t think I believed it until now. I don’t think I would have seen it so clearly without my suffering.
