I am really glad we have lenses that allow us to see things that we otherwise could not.
We have eyeglasses to help us to see around us.
We have magnifying glasses and microscopes to help us view what is tiny.
We have binoculars and telescopes to help us see what is far away.
Because of these finely crafted pieces of glass, we have found great wonders.
But how does one search for God?
By looking at what He has made, we see His power and creativity.
Seeking God, longing to know more of Him, wanting to be closer to Him, cannot be aided by glass alone.
As we pray with open hearts, we find Him there.
As we read His word, we learn of His presence and love throughout the ages and into our very present lives.
Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually!
—1 Chronicles 16:11
