After a visit to the Butterfly Exhibit at the Natural History Museum, I’m reminded of God’s interaction with us. We were not separated from the butterflies by glass; they were swirling all around us! And as if that wasn’t enough, they even chose to land on us and visit for a moment! It’s easy to view God as a distant figure that sits in heaven and observes us from behind glass. We cry out to Him in a moment of desperation, but He doesn’t respond. Perhaps He’s too far away to hear us! But this isn’t our God at all. He is so present with us and interacts at every moment. From the refreshment of waking up in the morning after uninterrupted sleep, to the majesty of a glamorous sunset – He is present. He loves to interact with us in everyday life, and if we start paying attention, it’s amazing just how much the Creator of the universe longs to land in our lives and visit for a moment. He longs to interact with you.
