Within and Around

“The same God who is within us is also all about us. He is in Bible readings and church services, but he is not restricted to those places. When we see beauty that overwhelms us; when we see acts of compassion that make us choke up;when we feel longing so deep and sweet that everything else in our life recedes; when the turn of a phrase or a bar of music catches us off guard and takes our breath away-then perhaps it is something more than just an aesthetic experience. Then it is God within us, indwelling every cell in our body, calling out for us to see and open ourselves up to his presence all around us.”

John Ortberg
