Spirituality: Looking for a Way into Ourselves
Many biblical stories depict the disturbances and the miracles that can happen when one stands in God’s presence. Moses’ countenance changed. Hagar saw and named God, the only person to have such a privilege in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament. Joseph experienced divine wisdom through dreams. Hannah was so deeply engaged in prayer that Eli, the priest, thought she was drunk. Lazarus returned from the dead. An unnamed woman’s faith caused her daughter to be healed. Clearly, there are so many different ways that one can be conscious, aware of, fully alive in God’s presence. The moments of illumination are available to us if we but look and see and taste and smell and touch the authenticity, innocence, and pleasure of God. For as we are made in God’s image, we possess that same dignity and value and love. God is worthy to be praised. Each of us is worthy to be loved.
