just want to share where my heart is this morning...
He is not afraid of our darkness - He does not ever stand across the street and yell at us to turn on the light, take a bath and clean up and then He will come visit us
He has willingly crossed the street. He has willingly joined us in our darkest places - in our deepest hurts - in the midst of our rejections - right there - right here - with us - in us
right there - right here - He is Himself - light, life, love, grace, peace - with us - in us
David wrote - and maybe sang - about Father restoring his soul. that's what He does. He restores. He gathers together all our parts and makes us whole
that is what He does
that is Who He is
