“Where’s my cell phone?” It’s a question I ask too often. Did it slip out of my pocket? Chances are it’s probably right where I left it. Wherever that is. I panic. Was it stolen? Will I find it? I retrace my steps, reminding myself a phone cannot walk away. We convince ourselves we’d be lost without those cell phones because we rely on them so much.
In those moments when I feel abandoned and ask myself where God is, the answer lies within my own heart. No one can steal God away from me or you. If his presence is lacking in our lives, it’s because we get lost in our own distractions—cell phones included.
God never leaves us. Ever. God is always ready to be found. No internet connection needed. No password required.
Let us seek the Lord, for he will be found!
