The Bible is a gritty book. Very raw. Very real. It deals with people just like us, just as needy and screwed up as we are, encountering a God who would rather die than spend eternity without them.
- Steven James
I said I would sail the roughest of seas to find some peace,
But I’m backing out again.
Cause I want my oceans in a spoon
Where they’re short and shallow;
Something that I can swallow
- Weaver at the Loom, “You Can’t Escape Them”
Genius imagery in those lyrics describing how we can charge head-first into life’s battles, yet so easily lose heart in cowardice and lack of faith, when the going gets tough. Truth be told, we like the idea of being a warrior in life’s battles so long as those battles are safe, easy, and manageable. In other words, we want “our oceans in a spoon.”
