God is...

Fire.  God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob, not of the philosophers and scholars.  Certainty.  Certainty.  Feeling.  Joy.  Peace.
Blaise Pascal, written on a sheet of paper and sewed into his jacket.

Sometimes God is too big for us to be put into words. Sometimes we can only sense Him and feel His precense.

God is our Holy Fire. He is the God of Patriarcs,  Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God of erring humans, not the God of philosophers and scholars. We can talk about God, we can make philosophies about Him but most of all, He is God, unexplainable, beyond our understanding.

All we can have is certainty of His nearness and existence, the feeling, joy and peace He gives us.
