Can you find the face of Jesus in my painting of the Texas Hill Country?
He IS very much present watching over what I like to call “The Misty Morning..” If you don’t see him at first, focus and concentrate. He will suddenly appear. If you don’t see him in a few minutes, I give a clue at the bottom of this article.
We only see what we pay close attention to and we miss what we don’t.
We Christians believe intellectually that God is ever-present in our lives and never leaves us or forsakes us, but believing and experiencing are significantly different. Too often we stroll through our daily routines in a daze or dash around from one event to the next and miss seeing him when he is right there beside us.
Because you don’t see God in your life doesn’t mean he is not there.
He is just as present and active in and around and through your life as in the lives of people you may consider saints or spiritual giants. What may be lacking is that you are not focusing your attention and looking for God’s presence in people and events throughout your day.
You will see Jesus’ face when you focus on the lowest hanging tree limbs to the right of the trunk. And ,eventually, you will see God in your everyday, walking-around life if you earnestly look for him. .
