thoughts on wandering - two

"This past month my brain has been turning over this idea in my head, trying desperately to articulate what I'm learning... Here's my precoffee attempt this morning: God loves us. And in order to love us, He must remain open to us even when we hurt Him. There is no fear in perfect love, and this is seen most clearly in His constant movement toward us, His open arms despite the pain. What is more powerful, and also more costly, than a love that remains vulnerable even when it bleeds? I cannot fathom it but I know it to be true nonetheless. Lord, teach me to love on your heavenly terms, a measure I cannot myself reach or even fully conceive of today."
