Did anyone see the movie The Shack? I did and I loved it more than I did the book. In the movie, God is portrayed as a motherly figure. I remember while reading the book, thinking this was weird but in the movie it completely made sense. The main character needed comforting and nobody comforts like a mom. God knows this because this is actually who God is in character—a Mother and a Father and we are patterned after Him in our respective roles.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
My grandson was fussy the other night…really fussy. I couldn’t calm him, his daddy couldn’t calm him but then I watched as my daughter-in-law Jamie picked him up and held him close. As soon as their eyes met he went from cries to coos.
Isaiah 66:13 says,” As a mother comforts her child so I will comfort you.
Are you hurting today? Be relieved friend, God knows just what we need.
