What Do You Believe
All of us have a belief system, whether we are conscious of it or not. Do you believe there is God? If so, what name do you give Him… Buddha, Spirit, Nature, Allah?
Whatever you name your God, when and how do you call on Him? Is it a casual relationship, or is it intimate daily exchange? Or maybe your relationship with God is strained, or is it non–existent at this time?
I confess that my relationship with God was confusing for many years of my adulthood.
I confess that my relationship with God was confusing for many years of my adulthood. I always believed there was a God. How could there not be when you look in the eyes of a child or the beauty and the majesty of the sea? But I had conflicting feelings about who He was in relation to me. I knew to call on Him when I was fearful or uncertain but what about the other times? Was I able to call on Him when I wanted a Gucci purse? Or is that bad? Why is God a HE when I come from a SHE? How can there be a God when all this horror is happening around the world? By the way, where does God live? And how can God be a God of love yet when I go to church, the minster preaches that I should fear God? Where is God in that? Breathe…..
While I am still a work in progress, God and I are thick as thieves these days. His sweet whisper gently guides me throughout my days, even when I don’t want to hear what he is telling me. God manifests in me as love, creativity, abundance, courage and forgiveness. He is always with me whether I am aware of His presence or not, and He doesn’t mind my questions. He doesn’t judge me for my weaknesses. I know when judgment, distrust and fear arise in me that is not God, it’s my ego trying to take over.

What has been your personal journey with God? And how does he show up in your life? Am I the only one who ever felt disconnected from the Source from which we come? Let’s talk about it.
