What is the right response? (July 23)
Hospital psychologist doctor. Always excellent. I’m on a journey of self-awareness.
Without work, silence and stillness settles things down. I had previously worked busily behind an enforced persona for the role. Projecting and pretending.
Prayer times help too. The good news euangelion (εὐαγγέλιον) is that scripture is realistic about ongoing hardship and challenge. Not the good news bias often proclaimed and projected from the front. Biblical good news has truth that is real, relevant, and relational. Rest, recovery, release.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28-30 MSG)
Windows has a God mode. Settings hidden for people who want to tinker. It’s not a safe place. Power is there if you know what you are doing. You don’t need words you can get there with pictures.

Scripture can be simple for all. Jesus explained things through accessible stories. Take care if you dig too deeply. I check out my thinking with the greatest commandments. (Matthew 22:34-40) Even experts misunderstand. In depth you can lose perspective and context. You’ll need to rebuild your life with the creator’s image.
