Love's Metamorphosis



Trembling 
We seek you
And 
trembling 
we find you
And 
trembling, 
we give you away
Who knew that love in its beautiful Hunger could fulfill someone this way?
 Blindly we seek you and blindly we find you and blindly we give you away
Who knew that love in its beautiful blindness could restore true sight this way?
 Broken, 
we seek you
And broken, 
we find you
And broken, 
still, still 
you increase
Who knew 
that love
In its 
Beautiful 
breaking
Creates a 
Masterpiece?

These days there's a lot of talk about 'finding ourselves, being true to ourselves, following what WE want' but it flies in the face of what Jesus taught...He didn't say find yourself, but deny yourself ...

 Then he said to them all: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
 Luke 9:23
