God in 100 Words Or Less

Do you know MPJ? If not, you should. Her blog is awesome--amazingly written, interesting topics, and one of the first and best sources of SA recovery-related material I found when I first got into this blogging experience. She recently wrote a post entitled "God in 100 words or less," in which (as you might imagine), she challenged others to explore their idea of a Higher Power. I've been thinking about this for a while, and as I'm right now in the midst of doing some shuffling about in my spiritual life, it seemed a good time to sort through some of my own ideas about God. And so....

God is Love. Truth. Beauty. All with Capital Letters.
My God connects us all because He is within us all--a divine spark in our deepest soul.
My God has no religion but reveals herself in all of them, sending messengers like Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed to show us his compassion.
He is my guide and strength. A very real presence in a sometimes unreal world.
God reveals Godself daily in kindness, laughter, music, sunsets.
My God cannot condemn because she cannot help but love us.
My God cannot be defined, but compels us to search for words anyway.

I totally love this, B. (and I love MPJ, too! :)

Fun writing.

Love it! It's so enlightening to read different perspectives on God. It's like we each present one small facet. And even though I didn't say it -- all of what you said could be said of my God too.

(And BTW, between you and Bernadine, I'm blushing!)
