Seeking God


If you are seeking God,
just stop and look around.
His presence is everywhere,
waiting to be found.

He’s in the faces of people
you meet along your way,
in the smiles that greet you
and brighten up your day.

His glory is seen in nature,
in the beauty of flowers and trees,
and felt in the warm sunshine,
a strong wind or a gentle breeze.

Signs of God’s presence surround you,
evidence that He always cares,
so open your heart to receive Him
and the love He so willingly shares.
