WHERE IS GOD? (HOVERING)

Hovering-over-the-waters-300x225

From an idea of Methodist theologian Indergit Bhogal who says that God is where God said God would be right from Genesis 1:1-2...

"First this: God created the Heavens and Earth—all you see, all you don’t see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God’s Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss." - Eugene Peterson's Message

 

In the formless void

Your Spirit fluttered

In the silent depth

Your poetry uttered

Seas were parted

Mountains firmed

Animals scampering

As serpents squirmed

 

Where is God

Where God’s always been

Everywhere there

In the seen and unseen

Where is God

Where God’s always been

 

In the evil dark

Your Spirit tarried

In howls of pain

Redemption carried

Amidst injustice

Between the thieves

Where violence reigns

And no one believes

 

Where is God

Where God’s always been

Everywhere there

In the seen and unseen

Where is God

Where God’s always been

 

Where is God

Hovering in creation

Where is God

Shining light in incarnation

Where is God

Weaving death into resurrection

Where is God

Here in grace and imagination.
