Searching for the heavenly Father

Reaching out towards the skies — searching for the heavenly FatherLast night my 2 year old daughter had woken up in the middle of the night calling for me, looking for me down the stairs, calling out my name, trying to find me. What a yearning, what an intuitive expression of love! Even though she didn’t know where to find me, and she knew where she would not find me, she searched for me, following the call of her heart! Just as I have, throughout my life, searched for my heavenly Father often in the wrong place… But my heart never gave up on this search, because God has claimed it for Himself from the beginning of my creation:

O Son of Being!

The heart is My home; sanctify it for My descent.
Thy spirit is My place of revelation; cleanse it for My manifestation.

The Hidden Words of Baha’u’llah

And God, being the loving Father, will never leave us alone, whether we know where to find Him right away or not:

The fatherhood of God, His loving-kindness and beneficence are apparent to all. In His mercy he provides fully and amply for His creatures and if any soul sins He does not suspend His bounty. All created things are visible manifestations of His fatherhood, mercy and heavenly bestowals.
