I hit a really hard time in my life a few years back when the love of God seemed like a bitter joke. You could say God’s love was a fact, and I could shrug and agree with you. They say the earth revolves around the sun, too, far above the thin layer of my life upon the earth.
I have found an Echo of those days. I commend it to you as 48 hours of a year of my life. It may show you, if it has for you the power it has for me, how the heart can unravel the weave that keeps the soul in the body.
I kept waiting to feel God’s love. Then I realized: That day hasn’t come yet.
“Behold, this is our God;
We have waited for Him, and He will save us.
This is the LORD;
We have waited for Him;
We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.” (Isaiah 25:9)
But it will.
Isn’t it amazing that the difference between winter and summer is just a matter of how much the earth leans toward the sun?
