How do you imagine God?
When you pray, how do you imagine God?
Someone asked me this question recently. I hadn't thought about that much, so it was interesting to try to explain it to someone else. My picture of God is hard to describe and it blends a few different images together, but it makes sense to me...much like a dream.
When I pray, I picture the sky. In the middle of the sky, I see the soft lines of a face.
I connect to the relational aspect of my faith in God when I imagine his face. In the sky, I see the vastness and power of our God. I see different colors in the sky, depending on where my heart is and what I'm praying about.
Sometimes I see a night sky with stars and dark blue and purple hues. Other times, I see a sunset with vibrant pink, orange, and yellow light. Another image I've seen is a sky covered with fresh green colors, not unlike moss covering tree bark. Rain falls as I see God's heart, mourning with me in the midst of suffering.
I still don't understand it all. I'm just beginning to unpack what this means, but it's cool to finally start noticing the pictures God has given me.
All of us experience God in different ways, and there's no right or wrong way to see God. But maybe you're like me, and you've never really thought about what it is to imagine God. When you pray, how do you imagine God?

Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures of God. It's inspired me to really think differently and more personally about God when I pray.
