In Genesis it says that we were created in the image of God. We humans are a bit like the lego version of the cathedral, we are made to bear witness and likeness to the God who created us. And like my kids it is amazing how often in order to understand who God is I look to the replica first-humans. Whether we mean to or not our understanding of how God operates is frequently linked to how our parents treated us and operated. It is as if our understanding of the cathedral is limited to the lego replica. Don't get me wrong the replica was amazing. But it was smaller, less ornate. Can we get a glimpse of God and gain an understanding of us from God instead of the other way round?
Have you ever Holy Spirit what God is feeling? Or what God thinks about you? Try it. Take 10 minutes ask God a question and write down everything that comes to your mind, without filtering it. Then later you can go back through and filter what might be God and what might not. Or you can show it to a friend and ask them to help you discern what is God's voice and what isn't. But before your cut stuff out, just write and see what you discover. May it be that you catch a glimpse of the amazing God in whose image we are made.
