How Do We Find God

How Do We Find God Or Do We

?Our discovery of God is, in a way,
God?s discovery of us.
We cannot go to heaven
to find him
because we have no way
of knowing where heaven is
or what it is.
He comes down from heaven
and finds us.?
–Thomas Merton
from Experiencing God
By Dennis Billy, C. SS. R

This poem tells us the most important thing about God, that he finds us when it is our time. No one can try to go and find heaven, they never will. We need God to come down and take us to heaven; he needs to show us the way.
When I read this poem, it made me really think. Over the summer, I had to go to two funerals that were for very different reasons. The first one was for my Aunt who was very young and diagnosed not even a year ago with cancer. She was suffering and needed to find heaven very badly, but God let her hold on until my cousin, her daughter, graduated from High School. Finally
