I’m on a bus, a rather stuffy bus, in fact I might open one of these grubby looking windows!. . .
I’m pondering. . .If someone was to ask me who is this ‘GOD’ that everyone keeps talking about, what would I say!.
You see it’s quite easy to become ‘over familiar’ with GOD, & to gently place HIM in a neat compartment within our lives, just like you would an expensive ornament!.
As with the ornament we can without knowing it, place GOD onto a shelf, moving HIM only to remove the flakes of dead skin from around our living space or to move HIM to ‘centre stage’ when a visitor comes round . . .so that we can appear ‘godly!’.
‘Fascinating!’. . .
I’m trying to think how many times I have placed GOD on to a shelf!. . .into a place of ‘convenience’ there for when I just ‘wanted’ something, maybe to purchase something that I couldn’t afford!.
‘I want it!’. . .’give it me!’. . .
The bus is cruising at the moment down its familiar route. . .loads of people on it. . .someone’s wearing to much aftershave, it’s beginning to irritate my throat. . .I might have to open another window!. . .
I wonder what their mantelpieces are like!, wether they dust regularly, I wonder wether GOD is even in their lives!, & if so whether HE is centre stage!. . .I wonder. . .
I’m home now,Just having a brew, and a slab of Dairy milk chocolate, and I’m still not sure how, in a few sentences I could explain to someone who GOD, is!. . .
Let’s see!, I might say something like. . .
GOD is the creator of this land we live in, this world we have abused!. . .
GOD is supremely intelligent, quietly restoring the damage that we daily cause, to plant life, to atmospheres to life itself. . .HE is the worlds greatest doctor.
GOD is strong in power moving mountains to rescue those who shout “help save me, I’m dying in the filth of my life, save me please save me!”. . .
GOD is rich, every granule of this planet belongs to HIM, the fibre of each Armani suit or Lacoste tracky or Addidas trabs, each wheel that cruises the highways ‘all’ belong to HIM. . .
GOD is love itself, compassionate, extremely patient, wanting to give everyone the chance to hear HIS-story. HE cares about the ‘detail’, is concerned about our concerns & wants all to live. . .’for ever!’. . .
GOD is exquisite, For those who have experienced one embrace of GOD’s love. . .they understand that nothing compares!. . .’nothing’. . .no ltr of gin, no line of snow. . .no secret passion. . .’nothing’. . .
GOD is clever, the cleverest of them all, scientist revel in their wisdom, GOD revels in HIS wisdom of creating science. . .who is there that can teach GOD!. . .
GOD enjoys conversation, enjoying one-one talks with HIS children, encouraging them, teaching them, leading them, and showing them all that is to come, after the ‘tomorrow’s end!. . .
GOD is watching all people’s those who know HIM & those who don’t. . .
GOD has a plan!. . .& were almost at the end of the delivery. . .
Ok!. . .I think that’s what I would say!. .
I might add a few more words about how GOD is preparing for the return of JESUS!. . .
Or about how this world will soon be over and something greater is coming!. . .
But the best thing I could say about GOD is this:
He. . .Loves. . .You. . .
