The belly comes before the soul.

Saturday, October 27, 2007

What a funny quote! It makes me think about taking all aspects of my physical being, treating my body with consideration and respect. A couple of years ago, I told someone I was trying to find God. She gently reminded me that God was not lost, maybe I was. That was a new way of looking at things for me. I started attending church daily, just so it would be more likely God would find me. In listening to hundreds of sermons, it finally started to occur to me that the way I was treating myself was very unloving. God wouldn't want me to be treated that way. I've got to take care of myself.

    I haven't found God in most of the churches I've attended. What I've found is lots of rhetoric, lots of egos, lots of bullies, lots of people espousing to be Godly while they do the most ungodly things.

    I think God is found inside ourselves, in the quiet moments, in our struggles, in little ways he lets us know he is there for us.
