..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

An Infusion of Love

[Eternal life is] nothing else than that blessed regard
wherewith You never cease to behold me, yes, even the
secret places of my soul. With You, to behold is to give
life: It is unceasingly to impart Your sweet love to
me so that I might love You; ‘tis to inflame me to love
You by love’s imparting, and to feed me by inflaming,
and by feeding to kindle my yearning, and by
kindling to make me drink of the dew of gladness, and by
drinking to infuse in me a fountain of life, and by infusing
to make it increase and endure.
... Nicolas of Cusa (1401-1464), The Vision of God

Hi I'm sorry for taking so long in posting this but I just wanted you to know that several years ago I was so disgusted with theological dogma and asked God to give me an infusion of His pure liquid love and the night that I prayed that I went to church and God infused me with His Love then I came home and Googled the above prayer and it directed me to your blog site and God just caused me to weep when He began to infuse me with the words you posted here. Thanks and God Bless.

that's wonderful! it's so encouraging when God orchestrates little or big things to emphasize a truth or let us know we are on the right path. I know what you mean about being disgusted with theological dogma--its not the dogma so much as what it does to the people who hold it...when it really is all about the love of God and walking in that love like Jesus did. Be encouraged, God is speaking the same message to many hungering hearts!
