Where Is God?

God is in the flowers
God is in the trees
God is in the butterflies
And the birds and bees

God is in the sunshine
God is in the storm
God is in the snow and frost
That makes you wrap up warm

God is in the good
God is in the bad
God is in what makes you happy
And what makes you sad

God is everywhere you look
And everywhere you go
God is your best friend always
Because God loves you so

Trina Graves – 19th May 2000


About This Poem

On a sunny May morning in 2000, I was staring out of the window on a bus travelling through the countryside of Oxfordshire, just appreciating the beautiful views, and these words just came into my head. I knew the simple words were for children and I would one day share them. Previous to this I had only ever written two things and they were not poems, so this was unusual for me. When I arrived at work, I was thinking about the poem and the first customer to walk into the photography shop was a man wearing a very large cross around his neck. I took this as a sign telling me the words were truly inspired from spirit. When I returned home later that day, I had no problem remembering the words to write out.

The concept that God was in the ‘bad’ was relatively new to me, only coming across it not long before in the book ‘Conversations With God’ by Neale Donald Walsch. I had found his books very enlightening and thought provoking, this concept was one I was learning to digest. Previous to this I always believed (as taught) there were two sides: good and bad, or, God and devil. But, at that time I didn’t really think about it and just put the poem away. 

Over the years I gained greater understanding through the Law Of Attraction, mainly as taught by Abraham-Hicks, and found out that God truly is in ALL things. There is no source of evil or bad, it’s just that we are in the habit of blocking the ever-present flow of goodness. How much we allow or block affects our degree of perceived love or fear. Even in the darkest of times and in the people who may be seen as evil, there is always a spark of light buried within.

  1. Thank you Amira. This was the start of things to come! I always thought it was too simplistic to be of much interest – apart from to children – but it was the first of my rhyming poems, so with me having an ‘About This Poem’ section I thought it was an important one to use early on. I am happily surprised that it is ‘liked’ by so many!

  2. Trina,
    What to say? Thank you beyond words for the follow. Its incredible how things happen! Your page encompasses so much of what I want to do to mine. I literally was just in my room meditating and asking God for vision for this new project and I had an idea to upload my poetry and describe the meanings of each in a way that I wish some of my favorite writers had. Here you come doing EXACTLY that! you are a gift to this world. I look forward to reading more of your work, and finding inspiration in your light!

    • It’s my pleasure to follow you! I’m not even sure how I came across your blog earlier, but I loved everything you were expressing and agreed so much with you.

      Although I have had a website (Spiritual Quotes To Live By) since 2010 I have only come across to ‘blog’ here a couple of weeks ago, but since then the synchronicities have been flowing so fast and have been amazing.. so you are obviously a part of this unfolding we are all doing together!
      Thank you for your kind words, I hope you enjoy the poems and I too look forward to reading more from you.
      Love, Light & Blessings
      Trina
