Finding God Today

I came across a site which is based on the ‘examination of consciousness’ (the Daily Examen) which was devised by Ignatius of Loyola, the 16th-century founder of the Jesuits.

The site asks you to answer only two questions:

1. Where did you find God today?

2. Where do you need to find God today?

You’ll be surprised by the answers that people have written. Go take a look.

Amazingly (ah, but then I’m not really amazed!) very few people ‘found God’ in doing something religious – rather they encountered him in the ordinary events of their lives. And that to me is and always will be the Good News.

God changes appearances every second. Blessed is the man who can recognize him in all his disguises. One moment he is a glass of fresh water, the next, your son bouncing on your knees or an enchanting woman, or perhaps merely a morning walk. ~ Nikos Kazantzakis

Here are my answers for today:

1. Where did you find God today?
In our meals together and the conversation we had over the food.
2. Where do you need to find God today?
In my relationships – need to be less reactive, more understanding and a lot more caring. 
What would your answers be today? 

May you be inspired – everyday!

  2. Ladies – Thank you for sharing. Isn't it amazing it is to 'find' Him…Sometimes I wonder why we have to march off to 'places of worship' when they are all around us!
