too big to understand

I want to open up my mind

Like ribbons falling from a gift,

But once unfurled and spread across the floor,

The pattern scattered over knees

And tiny human feet

Is complicated,

Kaleidoscopic,

Shifting each and every time

I think I’ve got a grip.

No, better not to even try.

Put the present back where found

But think about it all the time.

The God question came up in conversation today and I felt like it was something that I wanted to talk about because it is so interesting. I believe in a Christian God, but I really had to sit down and think about what a Christian God is.

I have a lot of friends who are agnostic and believe that God is nature or something similar. They are dead against organised religion, but interestingly, they do need something bigger than themselves to lean on.

Today, I spent a bit of time thinking about this and how God can be different things to different people, when He seems to have a positive impact on these people, regardless.

I think that this is because our minds are just too narrow to comprehend what God really is. We have to make our own version so that He fits in with what we can understand. I think that if a being created everything in the universe it is impossible for us to understand what that being may be like because we don’t even know how it all started or where it will end. My brain goes to mush just thinking about it.

I hope that you all have something to believe in during this strange and scary time. It really helps to feel like there is a loving presence that is in your corner and that has a listening ear in times of trouble.

Much Love

    There is a lot I don’t understand. That’s where faith comes in. And in the case of the Christian God, we have his word through the Bible. It’s hard to understand sometimes, but again, that’s where faith comes in. That still doesn’t make any of this any easier to deal with… :\
