When I look for God, I notice the ways other people have experienced Godís communication. I hear others share about the miracles in their lives. But since those miracles have happened to me, I can doubt that God is with me. I read about pillars of fire in the Hebrew Scriptures, and the disciples on fire in the Christian Scriptures. But if those experiences havenít happened to me, I can continue to doubt. What I forget to notice is that God connected with each of these people in a brand new way. It was a unique experience just for them. So for me, it probably will be unique too. Now Iím watching within my own life and needs for God to create a special way to connect with me. Sometimes it can be spectacular. Most times, God works within everyday experiences. But even then, I find God to be wildly creative with me. I am one of Godís Creation Zones. I just need to pay attention, give up control, and remember that Creation isnít over. Itís one of godís favorite things to do.
