"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart" Luke 10, 27.
How to find God? With childlike simplicity we can look toward the Father in Heaven. We can find Him in His creation,"The heavens shew forth the glory of God, and the firmament declareth the work of his hands"Ps 18, 2.
We can find God in our neighbour.The man of strong will is the picture of God's faithfulness and unchangeability. Good people remind us of His goodness. Even in lost sheep we can find God's mercy and grace, which one day may bring them conversion. We can find God in our souls and with gratitude say -Deo Gratias- for the grace of conversion, for the strength to endure suffering, for each answered prayer. We can find God in Christ who said:"No man cometh to the Father, but by me" Jn 14, 6, and, "he that seeth me seeth the Father also" Jn 14, 9. We can receive Jesus into our heart with Holy Communion or by reading Scriptures. But first, we need to remember to banish from our lives little idols, like love of honours or love of riches, and give way to the Father and see Him - Lord, shew us the Father Jn 14, 8.
