from the pages of Patrick's
Personal Spiritual Journal
No one ever told me how terrible communion with God can be.
Likewise no one ever told me it was this necessary.
Billed as a good idea or an important habit, I have never recognized the desperation of my soul for him.
Given the romantic picture of sipping tea while basking both in early morning sunlight and the life of his Word, I failed to accurately asses how parallel the experience would be with having a decayed tooth extracted without he comfort of Novocaine.
These words describe occurrences in the heart of the One we often picture as stoic as the Lincoln Memorial. He sounds more like a bad country song. Am I really to imitate such an out of balance God?
