"I still haven't found what I'm looking for," sang Bono in the 1980's. Your wish for "something more" may be a sign of your desire for God's fulfilling presence.
Ever look at a sunset and feel a "connection' with something beyond yourself? Experiences like this can reveal your natural desire for God,which is one way God attracts us.
Feeling grateful for something simple, like a conversation with a friend? Awareness of simple gifts can point to your underlying awareness of God's goodness.
When you read about holy men and women - Mother Teresa, Billy Graham, Martin Luther King Jr., the Dalai Lama - do you wish you were more like them? That's God calling to the holiness within us.
Even fleeting feelings that you're right where you should be, or that life makes sense, can be a sign of God's encouragement.
When you're sick or struggling, you often feel a greater need for God. But God isn't any closer; you're just more open in vulnerable times.
