Love is Scary, End

“There’s a wideness in God’s mercy
I cannot find in my own
And He keeps His fire burning
To melt this heart of stone
Keeps me aching with a yearning
Keeps me glad to have been caught
In the reckless raging fury
That they call the love of God

Now I’ve seen no band of angels
But I’ve heard the soldiers’ songs
Love hangs over them like a banner
Love within them leads them on
To the battle on the journey
And it’s never gonna stop
Ever widening their mercies
And the fury of His love

Oh the love of God
And oh the love of God
The love of God

Joy and sorrow are this ocean
And in their every ebb and flow
Now the Lord a door has opened
That all Hell could never close
Here I’m tested and made worthy
Tossed about but lifted up
In the reckless raging fury
That they call the love of God”

——–Rich Mullins, ‘The Love of God’

And so we come to the End. And by end, of course, I mean beginning. After all, the story starts when the hero finally accepts the quest, right? Not that I am a hero by any stretch of the imagination.

Of course, now that I gave up, all sorts of interesting things can happen. For instance, God might decide to take me to a church that is super uncomfortable for me, or He might want me to talk to people I don’t know, or He may choose to teach me trust. (Ugh.)

Oh wait…

So stick around, and we’ll see what stories and adventures occur on this ride down the reckless raging fury of God’s love.

May your adventure lead you to unexpected places!
