Wonder: Through a Crack in the Fog...

There are some mornings (like today, on the way to work) where I get a quick glimpse through that darkened glass. A brief flash of light and color. A taste of holy clarity.

Andrew Peterson sings in my car stereo:
"I say faith is a burden - a weight to bear - it's brave and bittersweet. And hope is hard to hold to... Lord I believe, only help my unbelief! Till there's no more faith, and no more hope, I'll see you're face and Lord, I'll know - that only love remains..."

I could talk in circles (and do) about the church and emerging culture, but God forgive me! Sometimes I forget how much I love the Lord. Then I hear a sweet whisper in my ear and my heart jumps a little and all of the cynicism and frustration that have marked my adult faith seem so petty in view of Amazing Grace.
...

I'm still frustrated. I'm still desperate for change. But I am hopelessly in love with the God who saved me, and so thankful for this morning.

Wow...awesome...I can relate. Personally, those "brief flashes" don't happen much for me, but when they do, I think I cling on to them so long, they themselves turn into an agenda...make sense?

Thanks, great post.

Absolutely makes sense. It's a vicious circle sometimes.

I love Jesus too - that's what really keeps me going
