I am reading Dana Candler's book Deep Unto Deep again. I am trying to take it more slowly, look up the scriptures, meditate on the truths. Tears run down my cheeks as she causes me to look back over my life and to see the relentless love of my God for me. He has zealously, pursued me for as long as I can remember. He has hedged in my heart, causing me constantly to feel and to know that there is nothing and no one that compares to Him and His great love. He has allowed me to continually experience a divine loneliness and dissatisfaction that can only be quenched by His love. He is jealous over my heart and will not share me with other lovers. I am overwhelmed, overcome, by love so deep, so true, so relentless. And He is overcome by me...my weak love ravishes His great heart. Oh the thought, my one drop of love, compared to the bottomless oceans of His love, moves His heart.
"May Christ through your faith actually dwell, settle down, abide, make His permanent home in your hearts. May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love. That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints, God's devoted people, the experience of that love, what is the breadth and length and height of it..." Ephesians 3:17-18 Amplified Bible
