God, Show Me A Cardinal

Peek-a-boo... Do you see him too? I see cardinals everywhere most days. My eyes are trained to spot them. So many years ago, on a walk in the woods, I prayed silently...desperate to know God was with me and this crazy thought came to mind. God, if you’re there would you show me a cardinal?

Instantly, a bright red cardinal landed on a low tree branch right of me! How gracious and kind He is. He didn’t have to show me any proof or sign of His presence- but He chose to for some reason. And decades later, I spot cardinals even when they’re obscured by nature’s camouflage. Perhaps because I’m always looking.. If you’re always looking for God you will find Him, moving, working, holding it all together.

"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."- Jeremiah 29:13
