Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
In Search of God
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, "What are you looking for?"
More than I care to admit, I enter a room with a great sense of purpose, only to stop and wonder, "Wait. Why am I here? What was I looking for?"
It's a matter, then, of doing some reconstruction: I have to retrace my steps, rediscovering what brought me from there to here.
So it is with so many of my days in general. I plow through all my tasks, but at some point, a nudge comes, and perhaps I'll even stop and pay attention. That voice poses that very question: What are you looking for?
Once again, but in a more general way, I must pause in the midst of the world's noise and retrace my steps. Retrace my steps, recall where my journey started and seek the face of the One who sent me on this mission. the One who asks the question and, I once again remember, provides the answer in his very self.
Lord, I seek you in all I do today.
