The God of Many Hats

We want to put God in a box

He’s a loving God

a warrior God

an unknowable God

a personal God

a He

a They

a person

a Spirit

a force

When in fact the beautiful thing about God

is that His person encompasses all these things

in ancient times,

they had many gods,

a god of shoes, of war, of harvest, of whatever

then the Jews came along and made

a crazy assertion,

that there was just God

and ever since then we have tried to split Him

up into little bits

because our brains love to compartmentalize things

but God remains God

the I AM, the God of infinite potential

I’m as guilty of this as the next person

of projecting onto, of pigeonholing Him

Yet the moment we allow God to be God

the moment He reveals Himself

to be ever so much more incredible than

we ever imagined He could be

we just have to have faith and trust

enough to allow Him to do so,

and allow ourselves that potential ourselves

so that we can be everything He meant us to be.
