_to write darkness

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell. _c.s. lewis

The song is called “Clouds.”  There is a line that I can’t get out of my mind… but at the same time I can’t exactly wrap my mind around it either.  I am not grasping it its fullness. A set of questions rather than a statement.  But… What is the answer(s)?  Good God. 

Is your love really Love?
Is my love really Love?
I think our love isn’t Love,
Unless it’s Love to the end.

Is your god really God?
Is my god really God?
I think our god isn’t God, 
If he fits inside our heads.

 

I have to say no. Everything inside of me screams no. And… I think that’s where I have gone wrong.  I can’t fathom the ways of the Creator… but I try… It’s impossible… there is no way… and that quite possibly is the simple beauty of it.  The intricacies of creation hand crafted by God obviously can’t fit inside my head… they overflow… I mean I couldn’t fit them in a flipping fish bowl the size of the Pacific… So why do I box God in… his abilities… his love… his creation?  Why do I sell him short? 

 

I, and I boldly say (we), have a completely sick and twisted view and understanding of the Holy God.
