A question I want to start asking (you)

“What do you assume I assume about you?”

Wouldn’t this help us deal squarely with each other – family and friends, nearlings and neighbors – instead of obliquely communicating while fraught with suspicion, cynicism, and/or resignation?

What an opportunity to cut away some moldy judgments and enjoy fresh revelations that enable us to love and receive each other more truthfully, more grace-fully, even when the disclosures are painful and ugly.

prayeresolve: to laugh at my fog of assumptions and trust Yahweh to grow mercy in my brain

 

p.s. I suggested this to my wife and as she was reacting to my suggestion I decided, yes, I must actually ask this question right now and not just theorize on its possibilities. We learned some things.

I can be a pedant.

Splitting ant hairs setae.

Faulting the colony for the clumsy gait of a (sacrificial) worker.

Trampling the hill for its (beautiful) irregularities.

 

Now I just need to recognize and release (not analyze) the fear that I’ve chosen to excavate.

 

Oh Lord,

Tend to my inner chambers

and heal to immediate perfection incremental shalom.

 

Thanks for the post Seth.
