Your Beautiful Mind

Leave a comment

June 14, 2013 by Isaac Hovet

Last night I again watched “A Beautiful Mind” with Russell Crowe.

I cried.

I cried again reflecting on people with mental illness. I cried thinking of the daily struggle these people have as they wrestle to discern what is real.

And then I thought of you. I thought of me. I thought of how difficult is for us to overcome the situation we are born into.

Your brain gets wired at a young age: how to feel, how to respond to stress, how to prioritize.

And most of us keep responding to life the way out brains were trained to by our early relationships and encounters.

Compassion wells up within me. I can love better than I do.

As a shepherd (pastor) I can get frustrated when I see people repetitiously acting in ways that hurt them and people around them.

But, today, I am reminded of how powerfully motivated people are by a mind that was crafted before they made decisions.

Grace must flow first.

On Father’s Day weekend, I am sensing God enlarge my Father’s heart for the weary, battered and ashamed people He loves.

Humanity: I love you.
