Because I know Him

I was given these verses today:

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.”
1 Corinthians 13:1-3

I know them. You know them. Every wedding planner knows them. We all know “love” –  love is the answer – now what is your question.

I know love.

“Love what, Paul?”

Does He ever do that to you?

Love what, Paul?

You know the big-screen blockbuster. When all is progressing as it should be. Then the script takes a weird turn and the storyline is all up in the air. My personal blockbuster: “love is the answer – now what is your question” all progressing nicely – on course for meeting my Maker at life’s end!  And then a plot-twist …

Love what, Paul

And before you jump in (as I did) – before you come up with some very sensible answers (as I did) – before even typing these words I had a trillion more words (now deleted) – a zillion other good reasons (now all discarded) – a lifetime’s experience of great answers (“Sorry it’s not any of that either”) … Until my “blockbuster” fizzled out (and is now on pause) … Until I am left only with this:

So which way is “up” and which is “down”?  Isn’t “love is always the answer” enough, Lord?

Walk this way, Paul.  Let’s find out together …

I used to groan when GSHJ whispered like this.  Now I just get excited.  I know we are off on another journey.

To a place He wishes me to reach.  To a place I don’t even know exists right now.  Nor how He will guide me there.

But I do know that the journey will be fun, and I do know the “destination” will be wondrous.  Because I do know Him and I do know that.

Wheeeeeeee …..
