Where is God?

Hi, kids of Trinity! I love the month of June. There’s more daylight and that means more opportunities to take walks with my family. It’s also the month that my friends like you are out of school for the summer. Woohoo!

I love it when you ask me questions. Here’s one I recently received: “I keep asking God to come but He never does. I have never seen Him.”

I understand why you might think God doesn’t come visit because you haven’t gotten to see God. It would be so cool to have God come to your soccer game or watch your favorite TV show with you, right? The good news is that God is there in all we do.

It’s true that we can’t reach out and touch God, but we can see the works and experience the beauty of God. Imagine that God is like the wind. You don’t actually see the wind, but you see how trees and flowers move because of the wind. If I asked you to describe what the wind looks like, you would have a hard time. But, even if you can’t see the wind, you know it’s real because of what it can do. The same is true with God.

Believing God is with us at all times involves trust. You trust your parents, teachers and closest friends to look out for you and be there when you need them. You can trust God, too. Grab your Bible and look up Proverbs 3:5. It tells us to trust in the Lord with all our hearts, and not to depend on our own understanding. That means, you don’t have to see God to believe in God. You can feel God’s love in your heart.

Another way to know God is with us is to look at all the people in our lives that God has sent to love us. God works through all of us to help each other. Jesus came to earth to show us how to love and serve everyone. When you see someone doing something nice, you are seeing the work of God.

Thanks for the question and remember my motto:

Paws for Jesus
