Alas, here I am again, in anguish, insisting that I have things the way I would prefer. I even have the audacity to say this encounter has been blessed, that God approves of me choosing to seek divine Love from unreliable sources.

Perhaps he fears you because he can find nothing in you of God’s love and God’sContinue reading “Do not be too quick…”
