He loves me not...He loves me...

We work so hard to seduce God, as if He were the object of our unrequited love. We can't seem to accept that He doesn't fall in love with us, He just loves us and He always has. It is we who must fall in love with Him, we must accept His advances and requite His love. We must allow Him to seduce us.

BSD, thank you for this post. I'm made to think of John Donne's sonnet:
Batter my heart, three-person'd God ...

Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain,
But am betroth'd unto your enemy ;
Divorce me, untie, or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I,
Except you enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.

I don't read too much Donne, but that sounds like a good one. I'll have to check out some more of his stuff, thanks.
