A human contradiction and divine constancy

To a place of delight and joy

It costs God nothing, so far as we know, to create nice things; but to convert rebellious wills cost Him crucifixion.

C.S. Lewis

One can easily understand a child who is afraid of the dark. The real tragedy of life is when grown men and women are afraid of the light.


Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4

Why is it that we so often flee what is good for us... quietly avoiding that place were our true selves meet true intention? If our original rebellion cost God crucifixion, is it also true that the return to our true selves costs us an inner agreement with crucifixion, on a personal level that we unconsciously flee?

And yet, such agreement is good for us -- that which we flee is our best interest! It is light for darkness, clarity for greyness, abundance for barrenness...

Thankfully, as George MacDonald says, "God is easy to please but hard to satisfy."

He will bring us to the place were our desires are His desires, and in that place, the desires of our heart will be known...

True meaning, undying Joy!
