Yahweh, Elohim, puts a smile on my face. Jehovah and Om, signs that can’t be erased. Gayatri and Guru, all names of divine. Mohammad, Adonai, the Name sounds like mine. If God is a spirit, why do we call it “He,” to give it more power and boost masculinity.

No, it isn’t a “He” that brings water to life. It isn’t a “He” that delivers us from strife. It isn’t a “He” each day rising the Sun. It won’t be a “He” when the fight is almost done. I’m calling it “Me,” as I live a good life. I’m calling it “Me” as I serve as a wife. I’m calling it “Me” as I pick up my seed. I’m calling it me, as I pray for our needs.

Christ still is my Savior as my hands I will raise, but God is a spirit, which can’t be denied and the power of its Glory is inside where it lies. So stop telling your daughters that it is a “He,” because truth is a spirit that dwells deep inside of me. Amen.
