God Missing?

See the hand of God in all that happens

Mary MacKillop - 1871

Mary MacKillop is in the company of all the great mystics here.  It’s very human to kid ourselves that, if we flee the pressures that weigh us down, then touching the face of God would be possible.

Little Brown Book - May 2017We yearn for somewhere quiet and peaceful, but if God is truly God, then the Divine Presence is always with us.

Yet we keep wanting to look in other places.  We can be unaware of the sacredness of where we are.  We overlook the need to go inside ourselves, to seek the God within.

We wait for God to come to us, but, as Mary points out, God is always with us.  It’s all about growing in awareness of this.

See the hand of God in all that happens – hard as that may sometimes be!


In God we live and move and have our being.

(Acts 17:28)
