"God never ceases to draw man to himself". If God never ceases to draw us toward Him, then what is it that invades, disrupts, and distances man from God?
If each of us took some time to reflect upon the distractions, disruptions, and idols in our lives that further the gap between us and God, we may begin to understand the reasons for any feeling of disconnect with our Heavenly Father who is consistently present to us in love.
We may not be able to see God unceasingly drawing us toward Him because we do not cease in searching for happiness and truth outside of Him. As God constantly pursues us and draws us near to Him, we can be consumed with grasping at other things in our lives. Our search and ceaseless seeking for fulfillment does not enable us to see God at work. The constant motion and occupied nature of our lives can become a road block on our spiritual journey.
"God never ceases to draw man to himself". It is only by our ceasing and surrender that we will be able to receive and allow the truth and happiness of God's love to resonate within us. We must recognize that the deepest desire written in the heart is for God, only then will we have joy. In the moments that we feel our Lord most distant, may we humbly be reminded that God never ceases and return to Him in prayer. Amen. (C.C.)
