Timeless Truths 1.0 – Make God Real
Make God Real
We talk of God, we read and write about God, yet God is not a reality to many of us. Make God real to yourself. Feel His presence every moment of your life.
He is the nearest of the near. Closer is he to us than our breathing, nearer than hands and feet. He is available 24 hours of the day and night. The tiniest whisper is audible to His ears for He is within every heart.
Develop a link of love with Him — any relationship that you wish, that of a father, a mother, a brother, a friend, even your beloved. Make Him the central presence of your life. Depend on Him for all your needs, great and small.
He is the one who will satisfy all your needs. Turn to him again and again. His open arms are always ready to receive you.
When your bond with Him is strong, you will realise that God is your helper, your protector, your guardian, your guide. I think of myself as a child sitting in the lap of my Mother Divine. I turn to her again and again and she has never failed me.
Make it a habit to go to Him as you would go to a friend sharing the incidents of your life naturally and spontaneously. Establish more and more points of contact with God. Let the day be full of little prayers to the Lord, little turnings towards Him. Ensure that the circuit between Him and you is never broken. Live and move and do your daily work in His ever-loving presence and you will be filled with an indescribable peace through all the changing vicissitudes of life.
