Beautiful. Left me weeping. In place of ashes, God gives abundance. What love.

Paul Miller said, “But the very nature of love is to narrow the life, it limits the person. It is a couple things; it strips your ego; the self dies in the activity of love. Probably the best thing is that it draws you into union with Christ and you get to taste God in the activity of loving.”

Looking from the outside at a person who loves their neighbors like Christ loves them, one might think that such a one would be forced to live a narrow life. However, from the inside, lovers of God live in perfect spiritual freedom. Their life is not constrained by earthly things and circumstances nor do they ever feel forced to love their spouses, for example. For them, heaven has opened its gates and their hearts do not longer belong to this life but to the kingdom of God.
