We want to put God in a box
He’s a loving God
a warrior God
an unknowable God
a personal God
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.
Quiet focused in the moment
a minutes seems like forever
to build worlds
a whole new person
calm and collected,
I don’t know,
You are strong
complicated but desiring to be known
You are here
you are loved
you are together
in this moment
“If we had only known then,
what we know now…”
But we do not truly know,
not yet or maybe ever.
Let us escape from the place
where everything needs to be is codified.
To the place where we can just be!
Who? What? Where? When? How?:
Lay that all aside.
We are here; we are Now; we are
People say all kinds of things about Jesus. Religious people. Non-religious people. Politicians and plebeians. Everybody’s got an opinion.
But an opinion is only that. You wanna know what Jesus is like, what He actually said and didn’t say in the context He said it? You gotta crack open the Word and find out for yourself.
Your relationship with the Divine is your own. Not your friend’s. Not your pastor’s. So, make it intimate. Make it count. Explore your own path with Him and see where He takes You.
Don’t know where to begin? Here’s some plans for you to choose from, or feel free to make up your own. The worst plan is the one not implemented at all.
If you need a Bible, contact me and I can get you one. If you’ve got a question, send it my way. If you want to tell me I’m full of it, haha that’s cool too. Just keep reading!
Prayers to you on your journey.
