    Fron another thread the question was posed Who is G!d?

    Now who is a leading question a little bit...but one response was
    Well often that doesn't fit the mode of definition.

    So anyway, sort of like the I love it when thread the idear hear is to just post what you feel "G!d is _______________" fill in the blank.

    Now the concept is not to disagree with a previous post or state what G!d isn't, you can expand on some other thought or just add your own. You can change or add to your own in a later post.

    But if you would state your belief

    G!d is......

    Mine comes from a song, G!d is my all and all. While anthropomorphic references are not my cup of tea that doesn't stop me from feeling like I'm crawling up into a chair nestling into the bosum of G!d..funny that huh. But G!d is in everything I see and where I can't see G!d I believe it is due to my eyes and understanding and got to contemplate more and look harder..maybe without reliance on sight. G!d is and that is our blessing.

    imo

    God is...
    the sun coming up of a morning,
    the moon rising at night,
    the cry of a newborn,
    the sigh of lovers,
    the safe feeling when you should be panicking,
    the look in his/her eyes,
    imo

    The first cause, the cause without a cause. The one who is both transcendent from & to some degree (which is debatable) immanent in his creation (both at the same time). The one who shows his wonders both on the horizons & also within man's individual & collective "self". The unity that is reflected in multiplicity. And no vision, thought, theory or technology can completely encompass him.

    Yup, thats one way (a very feminine one) of experiencing him. All the larger than life events.

    FS, you said exactly what I was going to say! G!d is Love. But yeah...

    Embracing the mystery is the point, no?

    The impetus to start this thread came from driving down the road with the song "G!d is" playing in my head, one my favs when our choir sings it.

    Couldn't find a free and easy link to listen but these are the words.

    God is
    My protection
    God is
    My all and all
    God is
    My light in darkness
    God is
    He is my all and all
    God is
    My joy in the time of sorrow
    God, God is
    My all and all

    God is
    My today and tomorrow
    God, my God is
    My all and all

    refrain:
    God is the joy and the strength of my life,
    Removes all pain, misery and strife,
    He promised to keep me, never to leave me,
    He'll never, never come short of His word.
    I've got to fast and pray,
    Stay in that narrow way,
    I'll keep my life clean everyday,
    I want to go with Him, when He comes back,
    I've come so far and I'll never turn back.
    God is, God is, God is, God is,
    God is, God is, God is, God is,
    God is my all and all.
    God is my all and all.
    God is my all and all.
