My reflection is from Living Faith:
The Lord is near to all who call upon him… Psalm 145:18
“When I was younger, I felt that God was far away, and I had to reach with all my strength or never be heard or seen. I learned to ask God to be near enough that I could feel the warmth of the healing light that comes with God‘s love. Nowadays my experience of God has changed; I can feel God near my bedside in the morning as the light comes through my window. I can feel God next to me when I experience a sense of accomplishment or happiness. I can feel God sitting on the floor with me when life events have knocked me down.￼
God has always been right here within reach, just waiting for me to ask for what I need. Even though we might find ourselves sometimes wondering where God is, there is no doubt that God hears us when we call.
Lord, please make your presence known to us who call on you for every need.” Vivian Amu
