Story From India by Susan L.

  Apologies to any of my readers in India for the liberality taken with this beautiful story. It was only briefly mentioned during a documentary but nevertheless, struck a chord with me. I hope I've been able to maintain the heart of the story.

  When man was first created, the lesser gods were upset because of the status man had; how God had made him in His image. They decided to steal the God-head from man and hide it from him. The gods discussed the best place to hide it.
  One said, "Let's hide it at the bottom of the ocean!"
  The others replied, "No, because one day, man will be able to go there."
  Another said, "What about hiding it in the sky?"
  The others replied, "No, because one day, man will be able to go there."
  One of the lesser, lesser gods suggested, "What if we hid it inside of man? They'll never think to look for it there!"
  And so it was agreed.
  Searching. Longing. Missing something. Empty. Disconnected. I hear these words all the time from people who have yet to fully embrace Jesus as their Lord. I felt the same way before He was invited into my life. I held out a wistful hope that there was something better, something more to this life on earth. Only now do I realize the invitation was an awakening of the recognition that God had always been there. It was me who had been blind.
  Science has proven we are genetically wired for God, for a connection that surpasses the physical restraints of this life. The "God Gene" is part of the makeup of every single cell in every part of our body. Seeing as genetics has also proven the existence of a genetic Adam and Eve, it means every single one of us on the planet share this gene.
  Is this coincidence?
  With God, there are no coincidences.
  "For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height--to know the love of Christ which passes all knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." Eph 4:14-19
