"I am listening to one of Marvin Sapp’s classic performances on Television. The song title is Miracle. This king of music brings a smile to my face. Quite instantly. I grew up on it, along with many other genres. However, I will always love this old school gospel sound. Miracles, right? Jesus turning water into wine was quite decent (for God’s sake). It is no more than a display of a creative process for me, much like the apparently little things that people Take For Granted!...

...Things like being able to turn some vegetables and meat into a soothing dish or an emotion into music or some form of art. Even the smallest of things (well what looks like it) such as turning a complex thought into articulate speech. We are all as bad ass as Jesus can be (even more, depending on your conviction). If people can just stop worshiping him and start looking at him as a signpost of incalculable #human_potential. The greatest miracle that could ever happen for anyone is to live in a world filled with things that seek to gnaw at your back, and still walk in #peace. Unbothered. Like a master. Need a Miracle today? That is my wish for you. ♥" - Anonymous

This picture of a loving God whose hands are 'covid' in blood is just overwhelming. The more one reads about how he has been and still is using suffering, disaster and disease to draw His children back to Him makes you want to play even further away. But, due to years and years of religious indoctrination you quickly look back and begin to pray to Him for forgiveness. “You might as well because your a** belongs to Him” as said Ray Charles.
Just pause and think about it for a moment. How different would life be if we didn’t personify God as this jealous, obsessive, 'egoic', all-deserving parent and many more identifications Man has created?
