Dear brothers and sisters,
Many people are lonely. They smile on the outside, cry on the inside. They hardly talk with their dears, easily talk with strangers. They feel nobody understands them, and desire to have a lover, a person who can understand their feeling and fill the void in their heart.
They don’t know that God is the perfect person they seek. God is Ông Trời, Buddha, Bodhisattva, Jesus, Thiên Chúa…
God loves them. God waits for them for a long time. But they don’t know.
If they know God, they will be comforted. God wipes away every teardrop from their eyes. Their grief turns to joy.
If they know God, they will not be alone. They’re peaceful because they have a person who can understand them and make them full. They’re peaceful because they see the wind carry their sorrow away, sunlight heal their pain, flowers fill their heart with hope, and quietness make them strong.
So know God.
God is around us. Left, right, in front, behind, above, below, inside and outside us. God is omnipresent. God’s love surrounds us.
Be still and know that I am God (Psalm 46:10).
Have a still day.
