I have decided to live my life searching… for Him.
His face, His touch, His words and His eyes.
I have decided to walk in His footsteps. Live life in His breath.
Listen for His voice and make the beat of His heart my rhythm in motion.
He is in the low places, the deep and dark crevices of life… the unlovely, the unkempt moments in time. He is there. Eyes wide open there. Healing and mending hands, there.
He is in the high places. The peaks. The perfect priceless moments. The moments that take your breath away. The Heaven touches earth moments. He is there. Eyes sparkling. Hands clapping and lifting, there.
He is there in the dark morning moments. There when those slumbered, sleep encrusted eyes begin to open and focus. He is there at first light, as we watch the sun rise and erase the darkness of night. Illuminating light shining, there.
He is there when the sun goes down, casting shadows upon the earth. As grass sleeps in the fields and trees become the resting place for the worm catching birds. He is there.
Singing a lullaby of love, there.
I have seen my share of grievances. Death and decay. Darkness and gloom. Heart ache and pain. He is even there. Wiping tears. Mending broken bones. Collecting splintered and fractured pieces.
He is there. Always there.
I have lived joyfully and had much laughter in life. Dancing and celebration. Songs of praise.
He is there dancing and teaching flying lessons. He is a warm coat on a cold Winter night. He is a cold lake to swim in on Hot Summer day. He is there in every moment. He sees me right here, right now.
He sees. He knows. He is there.
Now, my eyes are open. Fully open.
I finally see that He sees me. I can see His eyes that are wide open to me. The scales have fallen off my eyes and I can see the face of God.
He is here. He is here. Looking at me.
I now know that no matter what life throws at me. He is there. I can accept what I was given yesterday. I can accept what I will be given tomorrow. I can accept my lot in life, every day of my life. Past, present and future. He is there.
“…to accept your lot in life- that indeed is a gift from God. People who do this rarely look with sorrow on the past, for God has given them reasons for JOY.”

Such a great and well written post. I couldn’t agree more. God is always there, we can see him in everything. We have to decide to live our life looking for him. Slowing down long enough to pay attention is the hard part, but worth it more than we now. Thanks for sharing.

It’s so easy to forget that we’re never, ever alone. I’m going to look for Him in all my moments today. Thanks!
great and true words! amen.
Oh, AMEN, sister! Amen! I’m *seeing* more of Him in my life, too – and He brings such a richness to my life!
Enjoyed your post. When I clicked on the link for your website it was not there. Is the link wrong or do you no longer have it?

Today I was looking everywhere for satisfaction and peace. Instead of looking to the Lord. He is the only thing that is ALWAYS there for me and the only thing that will fulfill me…..
I’m so thrilled to see your beautiful and true words here!
He is always there, always watching–what peace.
Blessings and Joy to You!
Thank you for this lovely reminder that He Is There.
