I'm playing Badminton with my son on shabbos afternoon. The birdie goes flying and I can't find it.
"Where is it?" I ask my son.
"Right over there," he says, pointing to a spot right near me. I just had to turn my head to look and there it was.
I never even bothered looking, I think to myself.
I am suddenly struck with a powerful thought.
How many times in our lives do we ask, "Hashem...where are you?" without even bothering to look for Him?
How many times, when things are confusing and unclear, do we wonder where Hashem is hiding...when we haven't even made any effort to search for Him?
Is it that hard to find Hashem?
Look out for Him...open your eyes...and you will find Him.
It is not so hard.
He is here. He is right here. All you have to do is look for Him.
