What are you looking for?

WHAT if God were asking, through our sense of sight, ‘What are you looking for?’
What can you see… taste… touch… hear… smell?
What is it you’re looking for?
Are you looking for reasons to be grateful, perchance?
Are you looking for Me in your everyday going out and coming home?
Can you see Me? Especially in the banal and mundane? Where is your focus?
Can you imagine Me as a God who is curious for you and about you? Have you any questions of Me, or about Me, to quietly ponder as you live for Me? Are you hearing for an answer?
Do you seek me in your suffering, or do you perceive me as far too aloof for that? Do you seek Me for the breakthrough you require? Are you disappointed if it’s not time yet?
Can you detect that I want you to know Me; that I seek you to understand you are known by Me in your innermost parts? I know how much it hurts.
I still want to know, what are you looking for? Do you know that what you look for you will surely find? Do you understand that if you look for Me you will find me? Do you realise if you look for anything but Me, that too you shall find? What do you want? What do you choose?
God, I am sure, is hoping we’re looking, that our eyes are open, that we’re able to receive revelation and fulfillments of His goodness. He wants us alive, reachable, hearts open for stimulation, creativity, innovation, good works and reconciliation.
God wants our Spirit/soul connection vibrant, pliable, emergent, thriving. He wants us speaking with Him, no doubt, but more so, He is after a listener in us; someone who is looking for Him in the everyday.
God’s invitation is that, with faith, we would see and hear with the eyes and ears of life.
