Because your unaware,
That God’s not there,
Unnoticed in life’s glare.
The realization that God is real will make a really big difference in your life. When you’re unaware of God, you live like He is absent, even when you’re surrounded by His presence.
We are free to ignore the presence of God and fill our life with distractions, if we choose. Tormenting thoughts often require extended mental combat, otherwise they can last a lifetime.
The more you pursue awareness of God, the more you will experience His presence. God-seekers grow in closeness to Him. Since Jesus lives in the present, you can continually enjoy His presence while living on earth and not have to wait until you die.
Often drowned out by mental and emotional noise, the still, small voice of the living God steadily speaks within human hearts. It’s hard to find the living God in objects when He’s actively working in your heart to show you His presence. “Be still and know . . .”
I love it when spontaneous, joy-filled celebrations of God’s presence break out in my heart. God’s presence amidst His people is not a myth. I’ve experienced it many times.
It’s easy to ignore spiritual awareness–the inner indication that there’s more to life than organic mechanics–or we can pursue it. If you look within you, you’ll notice something that’s trying to lead you to better behavior, even when you don’t want to follow.
Your awareness overflows with thoughts, feelings, and desires. The ones you accept and focus on will shape your life.
