I’ve stopped thinking it odd that I can’t relate to 90% of worship music. Apart from the fact that African sing-songing, negro spirituals and soft white rock aren’t my default musical genres, I think the “problem” is how I met God.

I didn’t meet God as “God”. I met him as a friend. I don’t doubt that someday, I will have to play the God card. After all, enemies. But for now, I really just enjoy our relationship. I don’t shout at him, I don’t excessively toast him. We are easy.

Someone told me that because God is a potentate, one ought to genuflect before him. Perhaps, at “official functions”. But in everyday life, the King is my dad.
