Personal Spiritual Journal
Am I to enjoy building that which will never be complete?
In these quiet moments of reflection--moments of prayer and wrestling with God--I sense I am doing the taxing loathsome work of building my heart, my soul.
And yet, no matter how ardently I build, the work is never done.
There is always another deception to bring to light or another twisted mindset that I need you to untangle.
I know that some work--such as laundry and bridge painting--are characterized by their undone-ness, but must it be so with such an invisible and dire thing as my own heart?
What a miserable lot.
