“ I will give you this, my love, and I will not bargain or barter any longer. I will love you, as sure as He has loved me. I will discover what I can discover and though you remain a mystery, save God’s own knowledge, what I disclose of you I will keep in the warmest chamber of my heart, the very chamber where God has stowed Himself in me. And I will do this to my death, and to death it may bring me. I will love you like God, because of God, mighted by the power of God. I will stop expecting your love, demanding you love, trading for your love, gaming for your love. I will simply love. I am giving myself to you, and tomorrow I will do it again. I suppose the clock itself will wear thin its time before I am ended at this altar of dying and dying again.
God risked Himself on me. I will risk myself on you. And together, we will learn to love, and perhaps then, and only then, understand this gravity that drew Him, unto us.”
― Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality
Since I’m treating this blog as a journal of sorts, I would like to (hopefully constantly) post a quote of the month from various christian authors that anyone can easily relate to.
I first saw this quote from a youtube video shared on Facebook about a couple about to get married. In the video they shared how God’s hand was there in creating their beautiful love story. It’s not merely the ‘kilig’ of it all that got me, it’s how amazing it is how God brings people together in the most unexpected ways.
