Ever heard that Rihanna song where the chorus goes:
“We found love in a hopeless place, We found love in a hopeless place, We found love in a hopeless place”
Here’s the thing though: it doesn’t make any logical sense. It’s easy to sing those lyrics and fancy that they are a poetic way to describe your salvation experience- finding Love in the hopeless place that is this world.
But I didn’t find love. Love found me.
The sheep doesn’t find the shepherd nor does the lost coin present itself to the woman. The lost son had to return to the father because it’s the presence of the Father that makes it home.
Love is not relative to my position just as the sun is not relative to its orbiting planets; on the contrary, my position is relative to Love. In the presence of Love I am found and I am lost otherwise.
Love never walks away.
