You’ve probably noticed that my focus has shifted recently. I’ve experienced some what of an awakening. Life is so absolutely trivial and I’ve found solace in faith. I try to keep my faith based posting to a minimum. But the fact is, it’s part of who I am. My faith inspires me to inspire others through many different forms of creativity. What I have to share with you today is a new book that I’ve been reading entitled None Like Him by Jen Wilkin. It explores the “10 ways that God is different from us, and why that’s a good thing”.
None Like Him by Jen Wilkin
None Like Him is a complex and in-depth exploration of God’s many qualities. These qualities can attribute to the journey of becoming a God Fearing woman. I’ve always believed in God. But if I am being honest, I never really took the time to get to know him. To read the bible and explore faith beyond the notion that God is real and good. I found this book a bit challenging. However, insightful as it encouraged me to explore the bible even further. Each chapter explores one way that God is different from us, then it provides to verses for meditation, questions for reflection and a chapter specific prayer with space to document it within the book. As an avid note-taker and journaler, I tend to write in the margins. Ideas and concepts I want to explore, so I really loved that there’s a dedicated place within the book to reflect and review.
“God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible”
It’s not that we can be God, but ways we can be more like God. I’ve been wrestling with the idea in my mind. As an imperfect and flawed woman, I know that there are ways I can be better. Areas in myself that need improvement. It’s one of the reasons I seek God every single day. I don’t know God in the physical sense, but I infuse my world with his word. I do this so that his voice sounds loudly in my life, spirit, and heart. I want to know what it is to be God Fearing Woman. Therefore, I’m soaking in the pages. Flooding my brain with the words. Following where the scripture leads me and exploring it through journaling. This book is not something I wanted to rush through. It doesn’t matter if you read one, two or 10 pages a day, so long as the information is being absorbed.
