Hello dear friends, I read this today and thought of you. I am praying for you today that you would indeed see the Lord as you go about your day; maybe busy with work or family, perhaps going through tragedy or sometimes even worse, the mundane.  I pray right now that in Jesus Name and for His sake and the love that He deserves, we would see Him and walk out our days as we were intended to in Eden…moment by moment hearing  Him and His love for us,  and offering our love back to Him. I am confident He intends for us that it become hard to see anything else.

All my love to you, Beverly 

 CAN YOU SEE GOD?

A small boy once approached his slightly older sister with a question about God. “Susie, can anybody ever really see God?” he asked. 

Busy with other things, Susie curtly replied: “No, of course not silly. God is so far up in heaven that nobody can see Him.” 

Time passed, but his question still lingered so he approached his mom: “Mom, can anybody ever really see God?” “No, not really,” she gently said. “God is a spirit and He dwells in our hearts, but we can never really see Him.”

Somewhat satisfied but still wondering, the youngster went on his way. Not long afterwards, his saintly old grandfather took the little boy on a fishing trip.

 They were having a great time together. The sun was beginning to set with unusual splendor and the grandfather stared silently at the exquisite beauty unfolding before them.  

On seeing the face of his grandfather reflecting such deep peace and contentment, the little boy thought for a moment and finally spoke hesitatingly: “Granddad, I–I– wasn’t going to ask anybody else, but I wonder if you can tell me the answer to something I’ve been wondering about a long time. Can anybody–can anybody ever really see God?”  

The old man did not even turn his head. A long moment slipped by before he finally answered. “Son,” he quietly said. “It’s getting so I can’t see anything else.”

“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father…that according to the riches of his glory He may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may have strength to comprehend (to see, to really see) with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled (this is why He created you!) with all the fullness of God.”  Ephesians 3:14-19
