Today was the first day in a while that I have not had an irregular meeting. My schedule was the “default” Tuesday schedule: writing, working on the self-study, meeting with an independent study student, pick-up CKT from school, exercise. So the fact that I got very little accomplished today is not the fault of my extra obligations.
I reviewed my handwritten notes this morning, and I came across this reflection from a couple days ago:
I want God to penetrate my life again. I want to be aware of God’s presence and activity.
Where are you, God? The oppressors claim to know you, but they do not. The oppressed want to know you, but suffer.
We are in hell! We’re there now. This is it. Separation from God.
I thirst for reconciliation.
We are in hell.
Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven.
We are not special. We should thank God for our blessings.
