Awareness of God’s Presence 1

中文: Chinese Version

As we sat chatting, a friend asked how he could _experience_ God. Not just intellectually, but with the heart.

As I ponder my friend’s question, it seems to me that the first step is to BEGIN TO BE AWARE OF GOD’S PRESENCE IN DAILY LIFE.

I am reminded how in recent years I’ve benefited from asking myself, “How and when did I experience God‘s love today?”

I’m becoming more aware of God extending his kindness to me through some person or situation, say in a shop or during travel. These almost-unnoticed, but occasionally significant, events help me experience God’s presence.

Coffee ThoughtCoffee/tea thought:Try asking yourself for several weeks, “How did God reach out to me today?” And notice how your experience of God’s presence and friendship grows.
