Seeing God

Marigold Praying MantisThis insect on my marigold probably has a long genus and species name; however, back home we always called them praying mantis. Because I haven’t seen a praying mantis for many years, doesn’t mean they weren’t around.  I was busy with other matters and failed to notice them.

My relationship with God is somehow reminiscent of my relationship with this insect: Because I do not notice His presence does not mean that God is not with me. God doesn’t change or  go away. It is I who fail to look for him and see him in my life.
