I’m confident that Love has already won.
I’m confident that Love continues to win in this moment.
I’m confident that Love will win in the future.
Does that mean Love doesn’t face disappointment?
I guess we need to determine what “winning” means.
One day my sons will tell me “no,” and there won’t be much I can do about it. I won’t be able to put them into Time Out. I won’t be able to overrule them. Instead, I’ll be proud of them.
They will do what I’ve raised them to do. They will stand on their own feet, make the choice as competent adults. When we stand as together, man to man, looking each other eye to eye; I’m certain that I will have won as a father.
Perhaps we need to determine what “winning” really means in the divine context.
