On the day after I realized I am a lesbian, I invited over the woman I was in love with (we hadn't been together in any sexual way; we had not even hugged or kissed) so that we could watch Oprah's Super Soul Sunday. The guest was Brené Brown, whose new book was about vulnerability.
I have realized that God is who you make God to be. Your beliefs and ideologies of God create your experience of God. When you begin to question your ideas, you open the space for a new God to come through.
I need to be reminded frequently that I am not "The God Whisperer." I do not bend God to my will. I am not the Alpha. I do not train God to follow my lead. And if I ever think I'm the Alpha, I've got it backward.
