When i was a child and learned about God i pictured Him on Heaven, high above the sky. That´s probably the reason why i constantly find myself looking up there when i´m praying or talking with Him. Doing this brings me such a sense of calm. The infinity of the sky reminds me of the vastness of His love; it makes me feel like He is up there watching and protecting me from above. It makes me feel that He is in control.
But the truth is our God is much more than that. He is not a distant God which we need to picture in a far away site. Instead, He is a God that wants to be right where we are. But, if we only turn our heads up when we think about Him, we are losing the chance to see God down here. And trust me, He really is here. That´s what we can experience when we stop looking up all the time, when we give Him the chance to manifest His presence on the place where we stand.
My prayer today is to start looking down, to seek Him all around. To stop thinking of this far away God and remember to also turn our faces left, right, down!!!! God is above. God is below. GOD IS EVERYWHERE!! Let´s rejoice on the fact that He wants to show up and encounter with us in our every day lives.
Thank you God, for gifting me with places like this, where i can see you so clear.
