I think Kathleen that in a way God is like a hunter and pursues souls. If any of us knew at the outset of our prayer journey how much God demands of us we would flee from Him as someone berserk. For God does not demand 1% or 10% of our hearts, HE WANTS IT ALL. And He wants it because He is utterly and completely daft, mad, blindly in love with us. If we knew how much He loves us we would die of joy. But I think the eyes of our hearts only open slowly to see this and respond to it. First we crawl, then we toddle, then we walk. Finally we start to wake up a little and we really run into the heart of God's love. In a way it is like a little magnet before a great magnet. At the start the magnet moves a little but at the end it just binds, jumps and throws itself into the heart of God. So, I suppose in a real way we could say God is nuts, nuts with love and in another way that we become nuts with love when we are drawn to Him. But in another way it is those who do not follow Christ, who even with hold belief are nuts, for it was love that made us and Love that draws us to itself.
