“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” – Hebrews 11:1
Most of us have heard this being said time and time again. It is especially powerful when the question of why we believe in God arises and it is true – faith cannot be attested to anything physical. That would make the whole notion of faith null and void.
In light of this thought, I also do believe that we see God in different ways, places and things in our lives. “Some find it in the eyes of their children, some find it in their lover’s eyes… You’ll find it in the deepest friendships, the kind you’ll cherish all your life.” Westlife said it and this song rings so true for the places which we see & experience God in our lives.
For some, they see God in the relationships they have and in the people around them; others see it in the sunrise; some find God in the little moments of each day that get them through; others see God in nature. God can be seen and experienced in almost anything and everything. I was thinking of some of the moments where I encounter God and noticed that most of the pics I take and love to take are either of the sunset or when I’m by the water.
There is just something so peaceful about the sunset. It reminds me that in spite of what will have happened that day, God saw me through. Like the dusk of another day, all things do come to an end and I can hold onto His promises that everything will be alright in the end. There is the hope of a new day to follow.
The sky is God’s canvas and at sunset, He paints some of the most beautiful pictures. A beautiful love note to me.
By the sea, I gain perspective. I am reminded that God is so much bigger than everything. When I am consumed by something, it allows me to get out of my head and know that there is no problem too great for my God. It is also a gentle reminder that though I am important and treasured, I am but mortal – a small piece in the bigger, universal picture that is God’s plan.
Whatever challenges I face – big or small – I know that there is someone greater than all looking out for me.
Where do you see God?
