Lost and Found

If I can find Him with great ease, perhaps He is not my God.
If I cannot hope to find him at all, is He my God?
If I find him whenever I wish, have I found him?
If He can find me whenever He wishes, and tells me Who He is and who I am, and if I then know that He Whom I could not find has found me: then I know He is the Lord, my God: He has touched me with the finger that made me out of nothing.

Thomas Merton, from No Man is and Island
