In my mind, there are two categories of people:
::Those who can embrace concepts, axioms and words without having to completely understand them.
::Those who have to wrestle with, struggle to understand the why and ponder over what makes a thing "truly so".
To the later, one has to make it personal and it veritably has to become personal.... a part of the person, in order to understand.
Sometimes, when trying to comprehend the love of God, I feel as if that love cannot be personal, cannot be felt without truly understanding the "how" and the "why". It then goes under-appreciated as I put it on the shelf of things I cannot wrap my mind around.
- But that is the mystery of his love. It is present and will not leave. It remains even when I am so undeserving of it.
- It cannot be understood completely because I am not a person of perfect love. But it can understand me completely and it can be felt and embraced.
- Even if I cannot wrap my thoughts around it. I can take it down from my shelf of of "incomprehensibles"and hold it and appreciate it for the wonderful mystery that it is.
