Love seeks entry

Nor will God force any door to enter in. He may send a tempest about the house; the wind of His admonishment may burst doors and windows, yea, shake the house to its foundations; but not then, not so, will He enter.

The door must be opened
by the willing hand,
ere the foot of Love
will cross the threshold.

He watches to see the door move from within. Every tempest is but the other side of His love; it is love outside, that would be inside — love that knows the house is no house, only a place, until it enter.

–George MacDonald
