Question of the Day: God-talk

I am not comfortable using ‘God-talk’. You know, the fluffy, ‘spiritual’ talk. ‘God is leading me…’ ‘The Spirit showed me….’ ‘I felt God’s presence….’ ‘God was in that moment….’ etc…. You know exactly what I mean. People who walk around talking like the good parts of the Psalms. God this, the Spirit that. Christ all that…

But, I am not comfortable with that. It is, no doubt my upbringing where Christian expression was limited to jumping, shouting, hollering, hand raising, speaking in tongues, being slain in the Spirit, etc… on a Saturday or a Sunday evening service when the music was loud enough and the emotionalism of the moment reached its climax.We were never comfortable talking about the role of God in our lives.

Here’s the question – are you?

  1. I most definitely am. I find it helps me to remember so many things: GOD provides everything, GOD is helping me; GOD is always there for me; I am GOD’s; GOD loves me; I am to love GOD (both emotionally, and through practical ways, including obedience; to GOD goes all the praise and glory; I need to be THANKFUL to GOD; I need to live for GOD…

    Isn’t GOD good – that we have physical and spiritual life?

  2. I think if we cant talk about God in our lives and how he leads us, how can we say we are in relationship with Him?

    One of the books that made an impact on my life was by a RC monk…”Practising the presence of God”… he made a point of knowing Gods presence in his life no matter what it was he was doing.
