How Do We See God?


It has been a challenging week and I have not written as much as I usually do. It is good to be here with you this afternoon.

How do we see God? Some say, God is love. Some see God in nature. Some see God in the beauty of the night sky.

The fullness of joy is to behold God in everything.”

– Julian of Norwich

My prayer for us is to talk with God about experiencing the fullness of joy. Imagine the difference in our lives if we were to behold God in everything!!

Thank you for being here. Thank you for reading and sharing  Discovering and Sharing Grace. Our community of being a gentle witness is growing! We live in a hurting world. Let us communally pray for God to guide us to those in need.

    I agree with dt–it’s a pleasure to read your posts, Rick. This one makes me think of my best compliment ever–when one of my kids accused me by saying, “Mom, you think EVERYthing’s about God!”

    Sometimes I have to be reminded that God is still in charge and that God is good, all the time.

    A friend of mine says, “Thank You, God,” for everything that happens, whether it’s “good” or “bad.” It makes it all better (maybe still not great, but better!). It’s an enlightening exercise.

    After all, everything really IS about God.

    • Barb, what a wonderful statement to hear from your son! I also need to be reminded that God “has it” as I go along on my walk of faith. Great last line: “After all, everything really IS about God!”

    “God I offer You today, everything I do & say.
    Help Mt to be good & kind,
    Keep You close in heart & mind.”

    A little prayer I used to say with my kids & a couple that rode with us to school each morning. I think it was a good way to “grow” a “gentle witness.”

    Thanks for what you share with us…even when it’s hard.
