The Affective Love of God

It's been crazy long since I've posted here since I've been so busy blogging book reviews over at, but I read this passage in Brennan Manning's The Furious Longing of God this morning and had to share:

"The wild, unrestricted love of God is not simply an inspiring idea. When it imposes itself on mind and heart with the stark reality of ontological truth, it determines why and at what time you get up in the morning, how you pass your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, and who you hang out with; it affects what breaks your heart, what amazes you, and what makes your heart happy."

Am I letting the unfailing love of God affect my every moment? Lord, let your love seep into my every moment.
