God between the lines

Here is a C.S. Lewis quotation from Letters to Malcolm that inspired me recently:
We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade, the presence of God. The world is crowded with him. He walks everywhere incognito.
I love that idea if the incognito God whose presence so fills our vision that we are oblivious to it. The God who is so often between the lines; hidden; underneath; within; between the cracks; singing in the silent spaces. The God who is there.

Word verification here is "unsoil" so I've got to use it whither I've got anything to say or not!

In response, I'll just share what I often say in sermons:

that God is there in the background, giving our existence a meaning and purpose beyond this life.

because the God in-between the cracks is the Triune God of Israel
