A paradox is a seemingly contradictory statement that ends up possessing truthful revelations.
Case in point; ” God is the only One to whom we can surrender without losing ourselves. ”
After re-reading this statement several times… I , not only saw the truth in this paradox, but realized it’s unique eternal truth …that lives on.
It immediately made me think about the on-going tragic attack by Russia on Ukraine …for no apparent reason except geography and democracy… coupled with greed, power, and paranoia . Freedom is at stake-not only in Ukraine but everywhere free men, women, and children live.
I ordered Support Ukraine Fundraiser stickers-one of which I placed on my hand bag. Then I gave one to each of the older grandchildren ( 5th and 3rd grades) since they have discussed the war in their current events ” moment” of the day. They were excited about putting them on their social studies notebooks … cheering on freedom and learning about its high price!
In our world, amid the horrific scenes out of Ukraine, surrendering to tyranny is not paradoxical but fraught with the truth that Ukrainian lives will never be the same again if this happens. Which leads us back to the first true paradox-God is the only One to whom we can surrender without losing ourselves.
So until tomorrow… We live in a world of paradoxes-good and evil-passing and eternal -life and death-all at the same time. And the truth always lies in God-He is our way through the maze of life’s contradictory obstacles.
