Fall in Love

Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way.

What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything.

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekend, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.

Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.

~ Pedro Arrupe

Who are what are you in love with? Have you forsaken your first love - the only one who can love you perfectly? Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. ~ Revelation 2:4. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.

I found the following quote from Pedro Arrupe over at one of my favorite blogs, A Holy Experience. Ann Voskamp's writing is truly an offering of worship to Her Savior, and a blessing of encouragement and sharpening to all brothers and sisters who stop by to read, to listen, to ponder, to meditate...
