For many years, it seems I spent a lot of time in search of an elusive God. I tried to find God in the busyness of my life and work. I tried to see God in my commitment to church and family. I tried to experience Jesus in the poor and lonely. And surely, God is sometimes found in all those places and people.
But what I so often forgot in my frantic searching and working is that God is “right here,” standing at the doors to our hearts, knocking and waiting for a response. Perhaps I’ve been so busy that I have not stood still long enough to hear that gentle rapping—an invitation to enter and sit at his table.
