God’s love is marvelous to an extent that we cannot comprehend. We try. We dream. We hope. But take my word. We. Do. Not. Understand. Amazing love; salvation’s motivation, suffering’s soothing ointment. Amazing love. Too vast to comprehend.

Christ’s suffering was apparent but unrelateable. We wonder. We think. We ponder. But take my word. We. Are. Not. Aware. Amazing suffering; a gift to us, sin’s only redemption. Amazing suffering. Too deep to relate.

The Spirit’s touch is sweetly undescribeable. We seek. We breathe. We coax. But take my word. We. Can. Not. Express. Amazing touch; exhilarating to the soul, delight of the spirit. Amazing touch. Too precious to let go.

When people hurt and wound your soul,
The anger comes and binds the heart.

When life goes wrong and love is gone,
The anger comes to remind of flaws.

When trouble arises and fortune downsizes,
The anger comes to steal life’s light.

When peace flees and joy surrenders,
The anger comes to destroy what’s tender.

Anger. Anger. Anger.
A forbidden emotion.
A delicate, dancing explosion.

It circles the mind,
And reminds the soul,
Of all that which was,
Of all that could be,
Of all that was lost.

It kills delight’s seed,
It scars joy’s relief,
It breaks the happy,
It discourages the blessed.

Anger. Anger. Anger.
A forbidden emotion.
A delicate, dancing explosion.

What would life be,
Without anger?
Where would life go,
Without anger?
What would life see,
Without anger?

But do we know –
Though anger sows,
Discord –
That it’s an emotion,
Most necessary?

We live in a world,
Imperfect.
We walk in a life,
Broken.
We stand in existence,
Vulnerable.

Anger. Anger. Anger.
A forbidden emotion.
A delicate, dancing explosion.

We need it. We hate it. We all experience it.
But we don’t know how to release it.
That we must release it,
Through forgiveness.

Forgiveness.
A forbidden life-sentence.
A delicate, dancing expression.

Of love.

Anger.
Forgiveness.
Love.

What’s worth what?
