My God, Your God, Our God

Yesterday's post about the Doomsday Clock ended with these words:

"What does Your God say about the End of the World?"

First I have to disclaim with:
I was born in the U.S.A. and haven't learned other languages beyond a mere smattering, so I use the word "God". Lest anyone think that I think there are multiple Gods, please, take a look at some of the names we humans have given to the Un-Nameable One:

Tao, Aten, Mithras, Ahura Mazda, Yahweh, Jehovah, Elohim, Theos, Bog, Jumala, Kami,
Deus , Allah, The Light, El-Shaddai, Adonai, Jah, Tangri, Gud, Shang Ti, Shen, Tian Zhu, Brahman, Anami Purush, Ekam, Raam, Paarbrahm, Krishan, Akal Purakh


And, there are more, I'm sure...

So, my Disclaimer is that "Your God" = "your perception, experience, walk with God", and I hope you'll leave some Comments about Your God...

Ah, I was only aware of a few of those names. Got sidetracked though when I clicked on the link to find out more lol cause then I clicked on another link to find out something. However my walk with God is strengthening lately by being shown His love and to know love. I find that having a relationship with God that He will draw one to Him as one draws near or if having stepped away too far or something well it just seems to work out that way. That's part of my experience.

Anna,
What I come away with most from your comment is that "being Near to God" is a very practical thing in our walk with Him. And, as I wrote that, it made me think that being Near to God on our Walk means we won't get Lost as easily...
