  • STORY: Ghosts Mean God is Real

    On the last written page she read,"God, if you won't show yourself to me, you are either not real, or you do not love me." But she realized God had been even closer, this whole time. Her logic deducted with undeniable clarity that if this ghost was real, the spiritual world was real as well. And this meant that not only was God real, but that he cared enough to bring her to this moment to answer her prayer. Blurry eyed, she looked at the key hole and remembered how the fragile old woman had left her the key on the counter with a note that said, "Victoria, God holds the key to your heart."

  • Is God a He or a She

    God has qualities of both men and women. In the Bible, God created one man named Adam and then took a chunk out of him and made it into a woman. For God’s ultimate earthly creation, would he not want it to encompass both what we now call the masculine and feminine of God’s qualities? So now, We try to describe God using our limited rules of language, and we default to label God as a Him. For king David cried and danced before his people and was a man after God’s own heart.

  • God's answer to OCD

    I do have plenty of resources using art to facilitate a closer encounter with God, but today I want to talk to you about something that's been even more on my mind for 2 years. But OCD also reared its head when I had doubt about God. It says: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Instead of just dropping the thought, I started offering each one up to God.

  • The God Not in My Head

    If only I could pray, not to the idea of God in my head, but instead to the real God that made it.

  • God Learns

    It was that God learns. It sure seems like God learns. God descended “with” us. And he did it for the purpose of living in real relationship with us. So, I don’t deny that our God knows all things, including the future long before it happens, but maybe he sets that aspect of his character aside so he can be in a real relationship with his children.

  • As Real as Your Face

    We say that God is omniscient, God is love, God is all powerful.  We label him with ideal concepts like these but God is also very real and now.  He is real and now like the mole on my face or the certain scratch on the face of your watch. 📷 C.S Lewis says that the strangeness of our religion was one of the main arguments for it.  He says that Christianity has that queer quality about it that things have when they are actually real.  We may be able to say God is love, but we cannot say he will heal my dying aunt.

  • As Real as Rocks

    I think I assume the same things of girls as I do of God. (Daniel 10:13) It looks like our omnipotent God has to work around real wills of a certain shape and sharpness that oppose him, because he gave us that freedom. I think God is selecting a very real girl of a certain height and history for me. In the same way I need to let God break the mold in which I’ve captured him. And He’s way older, and more real than even the words Love, Justice, Omnicsience and Mercy.

  • Is the Devil Real

    So a hierarchy of power would be established by the strongest of the spiritual beings not serving God, and he would appoint others to keep his kingdom in order, each one jockeying for power over what they can get in that kingdom. Well, if he wanted to develop a kingdom that would rival God’s, he would want to populate it with the most glorious of God’s creatures, humans (which would also be major dig against his arch-rival anyway). So, this “Devil” guy, and all the forces he can organize work to make humans choose their own will so they will not be on God’s team, like these spiritual beings have chosen their own will. I think God does, but he says we have to choose to serve him in order for him to be able to do his good work in us.

  • At the Expense of the Real

    I so quickly forsake the needs of my heavenly man in exchange for the safety of my worldly one. It’s just so much easier to believe in. Raw Spoon
