I am not a religious person.
While I was raised in a Baptist household for much of my life, I renounce Christianity by the time I turned 16. I was never fond of the church or the actions of many evangelists that showered television with their mega services. I haven’t prayed in close to seven years, but I never stopped believing. I didn’t stop believing that there is a being or group of beings higher than us. Whether it is known as “God” or something more, that will forever be a mystery for most.
It’s tough to insinuate that humans came out of nowhere with no purpose. We’re just specks of dust that need direction. I generally feel that we were put on this earth for service, a goal that was given to us and for us to complete while going on our path. Once we completed what we are set to do, our physical time is up and we are done. In the means of achieving our purpose, we embody love while learning emotions such as anger, fear, and envy.
Love, it is always constant during that lifespan. What I hear frequently from people in my life is that they say God is all-loving. They say that God is Love and creates all in His image. “HIS image”, I speculate. I often hear that as well; with God being a dominant, male omniscient being. As I grew older, I begin to understand why it was said due to the patriarch mentality society is raised in. I live through my experiences and I see that may not be the case. What if the one being that many prayed to, call out in “His” name, and served willingly is a woman?
I find it particularly interesting that I see God as a woman due in part with my relationships with them. As what a strong man is to a woman, an even greater woman is key to the progress of man. I see the church women sanctified and loving all of God’s glory as if that was the one man in their life. The same can be said for a man and his undying love for women. God is Love, Man Loves Woman, so what is there to say that God is a Woman? What is there to say that in the minds of women God is a Man, due in the masculine nature of feeling secured in “His” presence? What if there is a God in each and every one of us and it exudes exponentially through our love?
I’m just rambling about at this time, but I really wonder….
