Is God more male than female?

I’ve grown up in a culture that taught me to be like God.
But I’m not a father, nor do I want to be. I’m not a son, with no desire to ever act like a man. And that leaves the Holy Spirit, but are we talking about a cloud here? Or a bird? ????
As a female raised in a primarily patriarchal church world, I’ve looked at the Trinity for many years and felt like an orphan, wondering where in the world I fit in. I would sing and pray to a man, longing to belong somewhere in the Godhead as a woman. Genesis 1 says I’m created in the image and likeness of God as a girl, which means God has a beautiful girlie side.
So what does that girlie side look like—and is God more masculine than feminine? Is it an equal split or a just a percentage here? What is the divine feminine and why hasn’t it been taught about very much in mainstream culture? What characteristics embody the feminine nature of God, and what has it cost us as human beings to leave Her out? (Yep, I went there, folks). ☺️
The other day my daughter Birdie fell out of a hammock with my husband. And though she was wrapped up in the strongest arms she knows, she didn’t want them. As she screamed and cried, all she wanted was me. MAMA. Nurture. Comfort. For a MOTHER to hold her as she wailed, providing the attunement she needed inside of her pain to return to a place of joyful connection, knowing that everything was going to be okay.
I’ve pressed hard into the divine Mother heart of God this year. I’ve spent my life relating to the man, but I needed the feminine, the Creator, the Comforter, the nurture, the beauty, the essence of BEING—finding out as a woman WHO I am truly created in the image and likeness of. Then and only then as a female can I embody and emulate a divine feminine presence on the earth. .
So let me ask you this, girls. Have you ever wondered about this, too? If we are no longer slave nor free, Jew nor Greek, male nor female….why does it seem we play an inferior role in the Godhead as the feminine?
Excited to explore some seemingly ‘dangerous’ thoughts with you, pushing down old religious borders, and learn to expand the beautiful feminine nature of God on the earth. ❤️ #instablog
