What do you mean? God is everywhere, I see it everywhere, manifested, living through all there is.
Good for you man.
"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God."
This life btw is the valley of the shadow of death, at least it's low points I should say, and that mocking thing called death, it does await us
there's no escaping it!
God is the life transcendant, the self aware beingness of everything everywhere always and forever and ever. He was, he is and he is to come, and he
is always with us, and as the self aware supreme being of the whole universe, his ACTUAL love? Well, we can't even begin to fathom it, except maybe
when we look to Jesus and see it reflected and made transparent there, otherwise being incomprehensible, it's inaccessible to us, so for me, I'm
greatful to the Lord, for the manigestation of the eternal Godhead in human form, and even HE had an intimate relationship with the first father of
all creation, in that twoness of oneness without which love, and thus God's own love, isn't possible. We are in relationship WITH God AND he is with
us, within us, with us in him, but "wait there's more!" he's as much innerent as he is transcendant
, so there's this indespensible I-thou
relationship with God
, the highest frame of reference being a heavenly household within which we are his children, and this place, this
earth, his future home when he will be with us, and we will be his children, and he will be our God.
"Surely, goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord, forever."
Hey that was pretty good. Bear in mind when I let the spirit write through me, I'm addressing as much myself as anyone, don't want anyone to think
that I'm being all preachy and the church minister around here.
