The Bible tells us in Romans that all that can be known about God is and can be known. His power and nature, even though invisible, are clearly seen in creation. Yet, everyone goes through a time where they try to look for God. Even followers of Christ have those moments where God seems to be invisible or at the most missing in action.

The “From Within” cross was inspired from this journey that I took. I was looking for God, and then realized that he was there all along. He was ready to listen.

Look at these scriptures. 1 Peter 3:4 says,

You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.

This reminder that we shouldn’t clothe ourselves with the outside world, but with the beauty of Christ who is in us. Then look at Romans 8:11:

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you.

When we feel like God is missing, or invisible, we need to look within. He is there with us. If the Holy Spirit truly does live in our lives, than God is never missing. He’s there to listen and direct us.
