I ran across this quote by Richard Foster today. I found it to be very moving and thought provoking.
“Today the heart of God is an open wound of love. He aches over our distance and preoccupation. He mourns that we do not draw near to him. He grieves that we have forgotten him. He weeps over our obsession with muchness and manyness. He longs for our presence.”
We often talk about how we want to “feel God’s presence” more. We want to know he is near. What if when we say that God simply replies “me too”?
I am discovering that I allow small things to shift my focus. I allow a lot of situations to keep me from being present to God.
What about you? Do you find Foster’s quote to be true in your life? How can we be more present to God?
Looking forward to the conversation.
