I wouldn’t know how to describe the love of Christ and give it poetic justice at the same time, so I will simply quote someone who already did. In Tozer’s words:
    The love of Christ both wounds and heals, it fascinates and frightens, it kills and makes alive, it draws and repulses. There can be nothing more terrible or wonderful than to be stricken with love for Christ so deeply that the whole being goes out in a pained adoration of His person, an adoration that disturbs and disconcerts while it purges and satisfies and relaxes the deep inner heart.
    The paradox is intense. It is heart-breaking. It is captivating. It is breath-taking. It is true.

    oOo

    When He sees me, may He see someone standing “in a pained adoration” of Him. When I see Him, my heart leaps at the thought of seeing Him smile.

    Joanna Alonzo is a walking paradox. She is a beautiful, albeit messy, mixture of thought and emotion, expressed in the form of hopefully readable – and relatable – stories. She is a kingdom kid, who looks forward to being a writer and storyteller even when she reaches heaven. She is passionate about the unreached, about those who have yet to know the Love she found in the arms of the Almighty. She is intrigued by the world and its people, who day by day, continue to convince her that God is the greatest Storyteller of all.
