The God Of Paradox

By Saint Augustine

“You are a God of infinite power yet utterly merciful

You can hide yourself from us and yet be with us all the time

You are the Creator of both raw energy and gentle beauty

You never change and yet You are the Author of change everywhere

You are neither old nor young yet You make all things new

You are endlessly active and yet the source of true rest

You love totally but without obsession

You possess us completely but without anxiety or domination

You owe us nothing but pay off all the debts of our sins.”

A meditation on Psalm 35:10 By Saint Augustine.
