“Wild Kids, Wild God : 31 Days Looking into God’s Heart” [Start Here!]

Welcome! This is part of a #Write31Days Challenge whereby I hope to write a post each day (atleast, that’s the plan). But I’m not so good at doing anything ‘daily’ except waking up, so this is a challenge indeed! (Grace Please!)

Topic: “Wild Kids, Wild God: 31 Days of Looking into God’s Heart.” 

Background: When I first found out I was pregnant I tried to prepare with reading (after I got off the floor from Heart-in-Formation-Wild-Kids-Wild-God_Write31DaysSeriescrying–shocked, afraid, overwhelmed..). But when I saw images of my little one in the womb I couldn’t look at people the same. With every person I saw, I thought: Wow, you were in someone’s womb!  Every. Single. Person. From the old man with the bulbous nose, to the Punkrock kid with tattoos. I was in awe.

Six years and four children later, I still am, but now even more humbled. Nothing could’ve prepared me for the heartbreaking revelations I’d get of God as Parent. And the more I find out about God, the more I’m in awe of people…

For me, Parenthood has been a foreign Planet or scary rollercoaster (surviving because I’m strapped in!). I often feel like I’m losing my mind and my heart is being drilled like a NYC sidewalk.

I never knew I could be so angry, depressed, and physically/mentally/spiritually wasted until the kids came. I also had no idea how truly selfish I was/am, or how strong, crazy and wild Love could be. Is this how God feels about me?! Does God think like this? Does God Love like this..?! Wow…

So I’m writing this series to share some of my insights. And I hope you’ll be blessed!

Audience: This series is not just for parents or people who look after kids, Millennium_Force1_Rollercoaster-nicknoltebut for Everyone. We’ve all been children, wanted Love, and we’ve all tasted Anger and Sorrow. And especially for anyone who’s ever been hurt/rejected/angered by a “Christian,” or heard/saw/experienced something negative from a “Church,” I’m so sorry, and I’m writing for you.

God’s been misunderstood and misrepresented for ages… many of us have messed up…Big Time. I know, I’m one of them. But God, like any good parent, always has a Plan B…!

Disclaimer: People may be offended by what I’ll write, or claim I don’t show enough respect for God. While I’m afraid of making God look anything less than God, and possibly opening a door for you to feel a freedom that’s so darn Free it’s Dangerous, I honestly believe it would be a sin for me not to write this. I don’t have the full picture, may mess up, but my heart is to put a bit of God’s Heart “out there.”

So, are you ready?  Here we go……top of the rollercoaster,  about to zoom down……

  1. I’m so excited to read about God/learn about God through your experiences/through your eyes, Mama Jasmine. It is exciting to me to think that I can learn something about God from a place other than the Bible. Thank you for all the sharing you’re doing about your life and your feelings about God and your children. I look forward to your posts, and this series. Thanks and blessings.
