the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate."
—1 Corinthians 1:19 (from Isaiah 29:14)
Feeling quietly better, even if only a bit. My back isn't nearly as bad, and a good conversation last night brought rest to my soul. It felt like falling over, exhausted, and being caught. Better, being understood.
It's an exception rather than the rule. On the whole, I don't feel like I understand where people are coming from anymore. Have to think that God is working to break something in me, and I'm too foolish and too tired to know what it is (or even ponder it for long).
Yet I'm grateful for what I've been given, and somehow still hopeful for what is to come.
"No eye has seen
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love Him."
—1 Corinthians 2:9 (from Isaiah 64:4)
