My heart soared with encouragement when I read her post; perhaps it will encourage yours as well no matter what your political preferences are.
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Trench Classes United and our guest writer, Karen Donahue, sister to Kim-Evinda.
There is such a duality -- actually probably more multi-faceted in life as humans. We wrestle – some more than others – daily, moment to moment between our higher selves and our opposite lower selves known as the human condition. If we choose the higher self at any given moment, it seems easier to see God and to know and do good. When we are at our lowest, sight of God seems murky not only by the stress of such lows, but of the mud we now have in our eyes, clouding our vision from/of God and of our higher selves, the way He sees us.
It’s the in-between where we can be saved or not by raising our hands above ourselves and asking for help, saving us from staying in the lowest points.
I am increasingly aware, now more than ever before, that I’ve been at some very low points, stayed there, making very unhealthy choices or judgments due to the filth clouding my vision, separating me from God. This is not where I want to be. But sometimes the miracle of the mud in our eyes can bring light and beautiful lessons from those said dark times. I do not relish the mud, the lows, but those times are instrumental in my well-being and growth later on if I “get” God in all of it.
