Am reading a book right now called “Outrageous Love” by Sheila Walsh and there was a sentence in it that I read last night before bed that is still swarming around in my brain tonight. It said, “Theological discussions provide a real great way to hide from a face to face encounter with the living God.”
I am certainly a fan of being well read and well educated, of thinking and being challenged by scripture. I have been sharpened most by some of those discussions with people who are wise and offer great insight into so many spiritual things, so I am not condemning theological discussions by any means.
Just wonder if sometimes it isn´t so much easier to have a head conversation than to have a heart experience. Want more of the real deal. Want to be open to it. Want to be ready for it, to embrace it. If he wants to meet face to face I just don´t want my head to get in the way of my heart anymore. Just want to let Him be God and show up and remember that I am on my face before Him.
I want face to face.
