Lucy and Aslan

I was thinking this morning about how my faith has grown through out the years.  Gained wisdom and life experiences have changed my view of God, for the better.  The more I try to know and understand about God, the larger and more complicated He becomes.  God isn't changing, but my view of Him does.

My thoughts took me to a passage that I remember from Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis where Lucy sees Aslan after a long time apart and exclaims,

“Aslan! You’re bigger.”
“That is because you are older, little one, ” answered he.
“Not because you are?”
“I am not. But every year you grow you will find me bigger.”

It is so cool that God meets us where we are at on our journey.  When we have faith like a child, He meets us in the appropriate way.  As long as we are pursuing growth, our faith can never become old and stale.  God will always become larger, there will always be a new facet to explore and discover.
