messy thoughts that won’t leave me alone

I don’t know what the meaning of life is. My heart’s first reaction is God. The meaning of life is God. But I don’t really know what that means. I don’t really know who, or what, God is either. Maybe the meaning of life is finding out who God is. Sometimes I think God is…
