SCRIPTURE: “God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him though he is not far from each one of us.” – ACTS 17:27 

My friend, Jim Cook, in Gainesville, shared this poem:
There are times when I almost can’t breathe Because life is so intoxicating… That’s when I see Jesus. 
Sometimes, as when words go together so beautifully In poetry, and I catch a whisper… That’s when I hear Jesus. 
When a tear escapes my eyes Because it can’t be contained in the sadness… I think I can almost feel Jesus.
Hearing beautiful music makes me know Of course His birth was accompanied by a heavenly choir… How else could Jesus appear? 
When a story is well-told I remember the greatest story…And the part that talks bout Jesus. 
As the past meets the present In the cloud of witnesses… I’m aware of Jesus then and now. 
When there is no explaining I know much is said without words…As with His final breath. 
I rest in comfort knowing each moment can surprise Revealing that life offers more… Jesus called it abundant. 
He showed it, so we can live it Through darkness and light… As we follow His way. 
PRAYER: Dear God, We are grateful for the words of scripture enduring even to our day. AMEN.
