"Am I a God who is near," declares the LORD, "rather than a God who is far away?" Jeremiah 23:23
"How come we can't see God?" was one of my girlies questions as we read Bible stories together one morning.
It stopped me and stumped me. Not sure why. But it did, and I fumbled around trying to figure out the answer that would satisfy a four-year-olds curiosity.
To be honest, I really didn't answer her ask. I moved forward and kept reading because I didn't know the "churchy" answer of a natural question at the time.
As I was writing a separate blog post, God tapped on my heart and asked me, "Do you really think you don't see me?"
"I Am in the soft breeze that cools you in the heat of hot summer day."
"I Am in the rain showers that refreshes everything."
"I Am in the encouraging words spoken to you time and time again."
"I Am in the laughter of your girlies as they play, so innocent."
"I Am in the dark sky as you peer and count the twinkle lights."
"I Am in each new dawn of the sunrise."
"I surround you every day in my creation of beauty and family and friends."
"I Am and always will be right beside you to the end."
Friends, I know my Savior is in all things but it is a gentle reminder to step away and remember and see our Creator is always Omnipresent.
It took a four-year-olds brave question to remind me of the love of our Savior who surrounds me.
What about you? Do you forget too? Does the ticking of a clock or the calendar call you away? Step away and soak in and savor the Love.
As for me, I will have a redo with my four-year-old girlie the next time I see her and point out we see God and He is always all around us.
This is one of my favorite things I apply each morning. Because I am a girl who loves the beach and the smell of coconut I slather this lotion on me each morning.
