God

I have a deep faith, I said that. But I’m not worried if you tell me you don’t have any faith in anything unseen or immeasurable. Why? I like your honesty, for one. You served me with a dose of Reality, and that’s the God I serve! If you haven’t had any out-of-this-world experiences, so when you think really hard about it, you don’t get this whole God thing, or if you’ve been mistreated horribly by seemingly happy people when you were an innocent child, why would you believe in God? Its easy to be a Christian in Oklahoma or an atheist at Burning Man, which is why I find myself gravitating towards atheist in Oklahoma and Christians at Burning man sometimes, because I know those mofos are being authentic. Takes some balls to be those people.

And I trust in God’s way and God’s time. Maybe you will “come around” to thinking like me and feeling the things I feel, or maybe God intended for people like you to stay just the way you are. I think God is too magnanimous to nit-pick how we find Him. I’m okay if you’re God is math or science. Lots of eyes and ears, out there measuring stuff and thinking about what it all could mean. That is Godly work to me.

I know I love the kids I work for. If they have a bad day, or even if they never come around to liking me for some reason, I would never turn my back on them. I would never abandon them. And I am just a woman. How much bigger is God? How much cuter and wondrous are all the possibilities of our humanity?

One thought on “God

  1. I like the article and can relate. It is important to me that I represent who I am with the same actions as words no matter the fallout I may get of my audience surrounding me.
