Finding God

Find God – When God is all around us, it should be easy to find Him? Right?

Maybe not. Depends on where we look. The attitude with which we try to find Him. All sorts of things can – and do – get in the way of us finding God.
This category is all about those things. Stuff to watch out for. Some will help us find God. Others are warnings that maybe we’re going down the wrong path.

The Bible tells us quite a bit about God. And yet, it can’t tell us everything. In large part that’s because we can’t begin to understand Him. So for now, the best we can do is to follow the path set for us in the Bible. The one Jesus gives us. Jesus says He is the way to the Father. So why not take advantage of what God Himself tells us in His book? That’s what we’ll try to do here.
