We humans can’t help ourselves. We naturally try to make sense of our world by putting everything, including God, love, and life, into manageable compartments. Then we label these compartments and hide within our ideas, which we have come to worship, because those, at least, we think we understand.

But God—who created a world of order that far surpasses our attempts at order—points his cannons at those compartments and goes “ba-boom!” And when we ask (because we never learn), “Why did you do that when I had it all so beautifully planned, thought out, and settled?” God says, “It was blocking my love. My love couldn’t reach you with all that stuff in the way.”
