God as parent. Believer as teenager.

We begin our faith as children looking to their parent. God is flawless, always looking out for us and all things will work out well in the end – if we just have faith.

Some believers become teenagers. Rebelling against all the flaws we see in our creator. We resist the crushing embrace of guilt, conscience and goodness. The gaze of creator exposed in each selfish thought we tried to keep unrevealed and for ourselves.
Some move beyond the teenage rebellion against God and love God despite the failures, weaknesses and unanswered questions. Because we see so much of ourselves in our creator.
Even though it might not all be alright in the end.
Even though its quite possible none of this is even certain.
