Images of God

I recently was asked by another blogger to post on what I view as my image of God. In our heads we all have different images of God's presence in our natural world, so what is your image?

I could find no picture of the image of God that I had; the closest I could find of my image of God was a website with the sun. My image of God is one set early in the morning when the sun is just rising over the distant and beautiful purple and red streaks blaze across. And as the sun rises a deep, golden Cross shines upon the sun - the sun though is shaped as the Eucharist. And finally as the bright orb reaches its peak the sky clears into soft blue - a lasting reminder of God's love of the cross and the glory in the Resurrection.

Add links to your images below.

Cool. If you ever find the visual, you will need to let me know that you posted it -- but your description is just breathtaking.

beautiful description. I saw God once in a sunrise - over the frozen sea. Not the colours you describe, but an awesome encounter.

I've never pictured God as sunrise and sunset and anything to do with the nature. Instead, God is like a King, seated on a throne, surrounded by intense light; as you set your eyes on Him, His splendour fills you with awe... Hmm, am I considered naive to be thinking like this?

Not at all are you naive. Christ is in your heart. We have a personal relationship with Him. He is not only seated in glory but in every good thing. Christ is with us on a personal level and no true love of God in anyway can be naive.
