My God is an intensely personal God.
He is deeply interested in me, not just in my soul, but in my life, my joys, sorrows, delights, loves, tears, failures. Because they are the story He has written for me, His protagonist.
He is interested in what I am interested in, delights in what I delight in, because He created both me and the thing which delights me, with the intention that I should find the same pleasure in it which He experiences ....
C.S Lewis had written a metaphor on how Christ's incarnation was like a playwright writing Himself as a character in his play, in order to interact with His characters--a perspective which charmed me. Here was Someone who knew me perfectly and took a keen, even personal interest in everything that happened to me as my Creator--so much so that He wrote Himself into my story to make Himself known to me.
This thought particularly appealed to me, as a writer who naturally feels a deep affinity with characters I've created. (I remember once mourning for a particularly endearing character over a week after deciding he had to die tragically.) To think that every detail about me was personal to Him, in the same way the crooked smile or penchant for caviar I'd given to a character was to me.
I love to think of Him this way. As my Writer.
