“The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to Himself. Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for.”
The Catechism of the Catholic Church Part I:27
We are continually searching for God amongst the distractions of the world. Sometimes, we actually find Him. Here’s a small example:
“The pencil is made with graphite as its core, its heart, its foundation. This graphite spills out what the hand wishes it to display. As Mother Theresa once said, “I am merely a pencil in the hand of God.” We too are pencils, writing His every word whether we know it or not. However, this fountain of wisdom is wrapped with wood, unable to touch God’s hand directly. This wood is life, which will not disappear until we have dulled our tips by our active faith, sharpened our interior through life’s difficulties, and turned our lives upside down by God who then can erase our errors. When God has written every word He can through us, and we are merely a stub of nothingness, it is then that He will discard our bodies, look at the words on the celestial pages and say, “it is good.” For what He writes through us echoes in our eternal life with Him.”
In the big and in the small, we have all found Christ, at least a glimmer of His presence, in our lives. Please share how you have recognized Him in your comments.
Live Jesus in our hearts forever!
