Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place (Psalm 51:6).
Why can’t God leave well enough alone? He has the surface—I look the part, act the part—anyone on the outside would think I’m a reasonably-well-functioning man of God.
Does he really need the core of my being?
It seems a little extreme, don’t you think? I mean, a man deserves his privacy; this, “Openness with your feelings” thing only goes so far.
He wants it all. He wants me
to reflect his wisdom and his love and his very nature all the way to the bone. He wants us, in our very essence, to be like him. And he won’t stop until he gets what he wants. Not if it takes all eternity.
Thank God, Beloved.
