"Look for Me"

God’s desire for fellowship and closeness with us is seen throughout the scriptures. But he also longs for us to reciprocate that desire for closeness and fellowship with him. So much so, that scripture tells us that once we put our faith in Jesus, God in turn puts his Holy Spirit in us so that we would be able to cry out to God and call him by his most intimate of names, “Abba (Daddy) God!” (Galatians 4:6, NIV) We also see God’s desire for closeness in one of the names He gave to Jesus, “Emmanuel” which means “God with us.”

This painting, poem, and song serve as an invitation to remind us that our triune God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, longs to walk closely with us in fellowship and communion. It is up to us to choose to partner with God and take the time to look for Him by developing our spiritual senses to perceive his nearness throughout all the extraordinary and ordinary portions of our existence.

Look for Me,

In the glory of the lit moon,

Beneath a soaring bird’s wings,

Within the moment of ‘soon’.

Look for Me,

Alongside the somber hearse,

Beyond the pastures quiet,

Within the mystic verse.

Look for Me,

As the solace to heal the pain,

Within the memoir of the butterfly

In a song’s familiar refrain.

Look for Me,

Despite a careless slipping grasp,

Within the feeling of home,

In the comfort of laughter’s past.

Look for Me,

In the silhouette of a winter tree,

Swirling the colors of autumn,

Inside the pages of history.

Look for Me,

Throughout your vapor upon the earth,

Waiting inside abandoned stories,

Hidden within new birth.

Look for Me,

Within a haunting melody

That awakens sublime’s longing

With traces of me --

The Lasting Remedy.

Look for Me...
