I have been watching the movie, “A Beautiful Mind” with my classes and it has really made me appreciate having a right mind. I hear it all the time in public prayers and praise reports, people thanking God for a right mind, but I think sometimes we take that gift for granted. I think we don’t realize how awesome it is to have a fully functioning brain. My step-grandmother has schizophrenia, and in some interactions with her, it is scary to think how powerful the mind is and how devastating it is when the brain has a miscue. I have had bouts with mild depression, general anxiety disorder, and as I get older, short term memory issues, but nothing as scary as schizophrenia. And, the fact that people have that disease or any mental disorder doesn’t mean that God is any less powerful, but when we see people who suffer from mental illness, it actually shows us how powerful God is. The framework of the mind is so complex that no human being could have created it. Even as I sit here typing, I am thinking about how my brain is simultaneously thinking of what to say while telling my fingers how to move to type the words and helping my eyes to see everything on the screen. It is nothing short of amazing! I don’t know how it works, but I know Who makes it work. And, I am thankful for waking up this morning and every day of my life clothed my right mind. Ms. EV
