Understanding God

To understand God
Is to understand He
Is not human
He is not some thing
We can put in a container
And study to learn the rules
By which He operates
Science explains the things
In nature, His creation
There is a balance and order
To the Earth and all
The touchable, seeable
Things in it
God is not a slave
To these rules,
He set them up,
But He is not subject
To these things He made
He is not a subject to humans
He made us.
He made us curious
He made us to think
To explore our world
To investigate the rules
To understand the balances
And to see that He is
Outside these understandable things
He is much greater than
The rules and the balance
And He gifted us
The chance to be
Out of balance too
We can go to extremes
We can fully accept
This otherness God provides
Or fully reject it
Some of us even make
This pursuit of balance
A lifelong quest
For perfect balance
In understanding God
There is the amazing
Surprise of God’s
Blanketing love
It exists just like Him
Outside the balances
Beyond the rules
It doesn’t follow the things
We can understand
Or wrap our human minds around
It makes no sense
That we could be so loved
Or accepted when
Our lives have gone
Like they have
In understanding God
The best place to start
Is by break a rule
And admitting He is beyond
Our human understanding
After that, things start
To make some sense
