But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.

I have told you before, many times. I will say again. I can imagine a very big God. I need an even bigger one. I need to know that the Spirit is able to wave its fingers in the puddle of the universe and dazzle in the wonder of it all. I need to know that the Spirit can walk among sinews of human biology and pull the weeded cancer cells from the garden of our tissues. I need to know that the Spirit can sit silently in the puzzle of an autistic child and invent the language of understanding. I need to know that inspite of all evidence to the contrary, I do love God. I need to know that God reveals himself to us on a need-to-know basis because any other way would make us explode. I need to know that God can take my heart and re-calibrate it for love bigger than my imagination and bigger than the fear that paralyzes the best of us.

Reveal yourself to me, Lord, if only in small peaces. Amen.
