I usually refer to God as "He" in these statements. Does this offend you? Language should not be a barrier to God, Him, the Creator, the Divine, Great Spirit --- whatever you want to call Him. Language is one level removed from God as we live and have our being in wordless communion with Him. The only barrier to God is when someone has a belief system that is set in stone and does not allow for Him to show you who He really is. Allow yourself to flow with the River of Life. A river changes course at times. Allow yourself this movement, which is only possible when you are not rigid in your beliefs that it has to be a certain way.
