Whispers of love, that’s what God offers us, no shouts, no yelling, just soft gentle whispers of love.
God communicates and is in communion with us at all times, we may not feel it, or know it, but that does not negate the fact that he is. We do not feel out cells splitting and dividing in us at all times, but they still are doing it.
As a fallen race, we have corroded our connection to God; we have covered it with our own failings and our own vision of what we want God to be like. We create an image, an image of a God that fits in to our own wants and needs, be they good or bad, we fit God in to it. We cut out the parts we don’t want, and create a false God, a God with only the parts we want.
We see this happening all the time; we see it with in the Catholic faith, and all other religions. We create a God that is only one dimensional, a God for this moment. But God is multidimensional, and he is a God for all moments.
If we read the bible, we see that God is forever changing, or so it seems. In the Old Testament, he is a God of rules and punishments, a God who treats his people as a father treats a young child, but in the New Testament we see a new and improved God, one who treats his people like young adults, offering us more control over our lives, allowing us to choose and decide.
The God of the Old and New Testaments is the same one and true God, he has not changed his mind, but rather we have grown, but we still are his children, and he still is our Father.
As any parent, regardless of the age of the child, we offer our advice, give our opinion and then allow our child to do as they will. We offer them whispers of love through our actions and our words.
God offers us the same, whispers of love, through his actions and words. We see his actions everyday; if we only take the time to look, and we hear his words, in our hearts, if only we would listen.
God offers us whispers of love…But are we willing to listen for them?
