Love, Consume Me!
What is it to love You, my God, with pure and holy abandon? I want to be able to say Your love is better than sex and food and sight, and to say it whole-heartedly, joyfully, so consumed with Your love that I give no mind to weak and twisted perceptions of my flesh which cannot conceive of a love that is pure and reckless, holy and passionately abandoned. Yet You can both fill me with such love and renew my understanding that I may see as You see and forget utterly my sinful self. This is why I can say with confidence that Your love, my King, brings greater joy, pleasure, and satisfaction than anything in this world and it is what I long for.
