Looking for God

David Showalter

Look into someone’s eyes:
     stare into the unimaginable depth.
Take time to look deeply enough.
     The light of life within shines brighter
     than any distant flaming sphere.
Long have we searched the heavens for signs of the Almightly—
     pinpoints of light,
     clusters of stars,
     patterns of immense clouds of swirling gas—
while the whole time,
     a look into the eyes,
     into the heart,
has revealed the true dwelling place
     of the Lord of the heavens.


REFLECT: When have you encountered the light of life in another persons’ heart? When has someone looked into your soul and found God?
