DAY 1

Anyone There?

Maybe God is closer than you think. Imagine a conversation between twins in the womb. Stupid Idea, because they can’t talk. But go with it for a minute:

One says, ‘We’ve got a mother who has made us and is all around us. One day we will meet her.’

The other says, ‘I’m not so sure about this idea of a mother. I don’t think there is anything outside this life. We’ve got all we need and we’ve got each other. There is nothing more than we can see and feel here. I find the idea of having ‘a mother’ rather unscientific, amusing in fact.’

Whether they believe in a mother or not their world will soon be shaken by enormous contractions. People often struggle to find God in their lives, but the truth is he’s all around us. We can reach out for him and find him because, in fact, he is not far from anyone.

DAY 1

I WANT TO KNOW YOU.

Before you continue, why not try praying. Use your own words, or you could say:

‘God, if you are there – and I am not sure you are – but if you are, I want to know you. I don’t want to fool myself; I really want to know you. So as I pray this week, please make yourself known to me.’

What if my prayer isn’t answered?

DAY 1

BELIEVE

People often struggle to find God in their lives, but the truth is he’s all around us. We can reach out and find him because, in fact, he is not far from anyone. God is interested in us and we are in some way made like him – in his image. It makes knowing him a genuine option.

Jesus said, ‘Everything is possible for one who believes.’

Ask God to help you believe. Use your own words, or you could say this:

‘God, it feels a bit strange talking to you, but I’m giving it a go. Perhaps you are closer than I think. If that’s true then I’m not going to ask for a sign, but I am going to ask you to remove anything that stops me from seeing you.’

Do I have to go to church to pray?

DAY 1

REACH OUT

Hear how Georgia reached out to God in a time of desperate need – Watch the video by clicking the play icon below.

Even with a full life we can feel empty. Some people face health scares, get stressed about money or worry about relationships. Others suffer from depression. Whatever it is, you know you could do with some help. God is good and often meets us when we reach out to him.
