We were designed to connect with others. Connecting is life. Loneliness is the ultimate horror. In connecting with God, we gain life. In connecting with others, we nourish and experience that life as we freely share it. Rugged individualism, proud independence and chosen isolation violate the nature of our existence as much as trying to breathe under water. – Larry Crabb

Empiricism is a theory that states that knowledge can only be obtained from sensory experience and much weight is put on evidence derived from experiments or testing. The atheist would say that because they have not seen, heard, felt, smelled or tasted God, He doesn’t exist. This reasoning seems narrow-minded as it discounts the sensory experience of others in order to be held. The evidence of God is everywhere. The earth and the sky shout His existence or at the very least beg the sincere question, “Who made this?” God invites us to test Him. He wants more than anything to reveal Himself to us but the sincerity of our desire to know plays a huge part in what we will see, hear, feel…

And that is what He’s been doing ever since. Though the depth may escape us His love is not beyond our understanding. He wants us to know and experience His love in all that we encounter, it’s the very reason we exist. We just have to let Him, we get to choose.
