The Furious Love of God

“When the night is bad and my nerves are shattered and the waves break over the sides, Infinity speaks. God Almighty shares through His son the depth of His feelings for me, His love flashes into my soul, and I am overtaken by mystery.

I have two choices. I can escape below into skepticism and intellectualism, hanging on for dear life. Or, with radical amazement, I can stay on deck and boldly stand in surrendered faith to the truth of my belovedness, caught up in the reckless raging fury that they call the love of God. And learn to pray.”

“Abba I belong to you.”

— Brennan Manning, The Furious Longing for God

“I am my beloved’s and his desire is for me.”

Song of Solomon 7:10 NASB
