Devotions thoughts taken from Michael Molinos book, The Spiritual Guide

Are we caught up in our prayer life by making requests, meditation, reasoning, and straining to find God without?  God is within us!  St. Augustine summed it up by saying, “Lord I went wandering like a stray sheep, seeking you with anxious reasoning weighted within me. I wearied myself much in looking for you without. Yet you had your habitation within me…I went around the streets and squares of the cities of this world and found you not, because in vain I sought without for you who were within.”  We will not find God without by means of reasoning and logic. Each of us has Him present within us for we are His living Temple. Let us enjoy Him who lives within us and rest in his care for us.
