A Letter to God

God (You: Jesus), I look for you everywhere. But not in numbers made of cold stone; rather in stories made of flesh and blood even as I myself am.

written in July, 2022.

Sometimes, I still think of Sabaa Tahir’s words in the Ember in the Ashes quartet. When Elias cries, “Why is it humans who must give up our humanity? Why can’t [God] become more like us?”

It still amazes me how Jesus is the opposite. He put on flesh and blood and entered his own story. I’m not sure how much more there is to say.
