Being Crushed Down, Being Raised Up
Paraphrasing Ecclesiastes, there is a time to be crushed down, and a time to be raised up. The trick is to see how the one leads to the other. Today is a 'crushed down' kind of day. I want to say in the words of Ben Skyles "God crush me down, so I can be raised up" or in the words of Wittgenstein "I am a worm, but through God I become a man, may Christ guide me", or in the words of Paul "may I die to myself so I may live with Christ." God let me say those things, and accept all that comes as having meaning and value, emanating from your very being.
