"The reckless raging fury that they call the love of God." from 5/14/06

Inspired by line written by Rich Mullins, "The reckless raging fury that they call the love of God."


That reckless

raging

fury I know so well...

your own discontent

as you struggle to find a balance

among that which you long for

and that which you have been given.



Reasonable doubt

hazy,

clouding every judgment...

your own hesitation

as you turn to your God,

"Is this truly all which I am meant to have

or am I merely not living up to your plan?"



"Cause surely one who loves as You

could not bear me such pain."




The gripping guilt

felt

when you turn away for only a moment...

your own humility

as you question your faith

for simply daring to long for more

and being impertinent enough to ask,

why you could not have it now

and is it really worth the wait?
