Breaking Out of Time

Ann Voskamp the wise says that “faith thanks God in the middle of the story.”
Here I am, caught in the middle. The middle of life. The middle of recovery. The middle of motherhood. The middle of the waiting. I have passed through some stories, all of which I can look back on and thank God. In the midst of those stories, however, I was pretty much cursing God. I want to understand God from a non-linear perspective. I want to see God above the spectrum of time. You see, to God, my story has no beginning, middle, and end. It is complete, a whole. There seems to be this juxtoposition to the concept of living in the moment. To be completely present here and now is to step out of time. You are so enraptured by the glorious, kairos now that you have no concept that you are even within the bounds of time. God is with us, in the forever now. There is no “waiting” with God, because all is now. In His infinite greatness, He has poured eternity into this tiny millisecond, and we can thank Him and see Him in mindfulness and in the hushed, deep, pause. In God’s transcendence, there is an eternal present, and if I am deliberate, I can step out of time into His transcendent now. I pray for eyes to see and ears to hear the infinite God in this, His timeless moment.

I used to keep my mouth shut. This is what I say when I don't know what to say.

Pure Glory

The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims His handiwork. Psalms 19:1

The Mind Connectory

The Mind Connectory is a place where thoughts are shared in the hope that many people can relate to similar situations. I anticipate that it can become a library of knowledge from which people can draw up plans to overcome challenging situations – whether they be brought on by loss or mental barriers. The mechanisms for coping with matters of the mind are quite connected regardless of their cause. That is why I believe that learning from other people’s experiences (both successful and unsuccessful) is the key to self improvement as well as a better future for ourselves and the people around us.
