“The Lord travels in all directions.

The Lord arrives from all directions at once.

Wherever we are, we find that He has just departed.

Wherever we go, we discover that He has just arrived before us. ”

Thomas Merton. No Man Is An Island (New York: Harvest Book, 1983): 239

God operates in eternity not time.  He operates without spatial limitations.  He just arrived everywhere but He never left anywhere.  Nothing He does causes anything else.  Everything is just as it has always been and always will be.  This is the God in Whose hands I am, have always been, and always will be.  So are you.
