For most of my life I have struggled to find God, to know God, to love God.

#WhyChrist #LoveGod

For most of my life I have struggled to find God, to know God, to love God.

Now I wonder whether I have sufficiently realized that during all this time God has been trying to find me, to know me, and to love me.
The question is not “How am I to find God?” but “How am I to let myself be found by him?”
The question is not “How am I to know God?” but “How am I to let myself be known by God?”
And, finally, the question is not “How am I to love God?” but “How am I to let myself be loved by God?”
God is looking into the distance for me, trying to find me, and longing to bring me home.

Henri Nouwen
