I realized something today.
I am being distracted. There is something in the way of understanding, communication, connection.
But it is going to take a lot more than just a shift of my position so that I can clearly see.
I realized that I have a log in my eye.
A big one.
It's more like a tree.
I think it is big enough to have roots that go way down deep, circling my heart. It definitely affects the way I think.
Because of this log, I do things that I do not want to do (Romans 7:14-24). I judge, I am critical and hurtful with my words. I am impatient and unforgiving and selfish (Luke 6:37-38).
Oh how I need this log removed from my eye.
It's a good thing I know the Gardener.
Lord, please remove this log from my eye. Pull the roots from my heart and mind. Restore my sight so that I may see as You see.
