Searching For God

John P. Read © more by John P. Read

Published: May 2019

When searching for God,
There's no need to look far.
He's not in the clouds
Or some far away star.

He doesn't hide in the shadows,
Even though he's hard to see.
God resides in the minds
Of those who believe.

Our bodies are a temple,
So be good; never stray.
Be truthful and honest.
Praise God every day.

For God is your spirit.
God is your soul.
God's in your heart.
God is love; this I know.

A poems but a Whisper That lingers on the Breeze. A few unspoken Words Appear like falling Leaves. A tapestry of Memories Dreams that haunt the Mind Jumbled words scrambled Thoughts Borrowed from the passing of Time. John Read.

Dear John,
Thank you so much for this short poem. I love the description "God is love, this I know" as it's closely connected to the Bible verse in John 4:7-21. (A verse I really connect to.)
