Go low to get high, go low to get high…the words were becoming familiar now after three+ weeks doing this workout. As I squatted as low as I could go – which wasn’t very far down – and then reached as high as I could, allowing my body to do what was being asked of me, my mind took me to another place.
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United. Today’s message may appear to have a hidden meaning, but then again, spiritual truths aren’t always so easy to grasp. Our prayer is that you grasp this in your mind and heart, and that it explodes in your actions.
The workout I was doing was from Beachbody and was a Bar-Blend series. I can’t help but smile as I write this because it’s led by a former ballerina, which I am NOT! In fact, I am trying desperately to rid myself of an image I get all too often, especially when I am either angry or frustrated, and that is a bull in a china cabinet! 😊 😊
Anyway, after hearing these words for several weeks, they started to take on an additional meaning, and not just physically but spiritually as well. Have you ever wrestled with your private-party logic, justifying why you said something, did something, felt something, and as you wrestle, you come up with the same answer every single time, that you weren’t in the wrong?
Well, I literally could write a book on all my private party logic parties, but for the sake of time, let me just say that private-party logic rarely, if ever, leads you to a positive resolution. But you can’t know that if you don’t bring God into the party, and/or invite someone you trust into the situation that we keep mulling over and over in our minds and hearts.
When God is invited to the not-so-positive party, Truth will always collide with reasoning and self-pity, even when we feel we have every right to reach out and lash out. It’s when we go low, in other words, let go of our “right” to be frustrated, and acknowledge what is behind it, usually fear, we will be able to take the high road.
This week, in my current S.O.A.R. (season of adultery recovery) I have learned and put into practice the value of saying nothing at all. And if you know me…well, I’ll just leave it at that 😊😊😊
Friend, can I encourage you to join me in this short prayer: Oh, Abba, help me to remember to let go, let You in to my private-party logic so that truth and resolution would follow and lead me to higher ground.
