Just because Betsy told me how I was behaving terribly toward her and my children...
Didn’t result in Me seeing myself that Way. In fact, I specifically, and in direct proportion, wouldn’t and didn’t look at myself in the mirror she held in front of me. A detestable mirror which I called “accusations.” I did not have ears to hear or eyes to see.
It was only on the day (which, it turns out, is judgement day—the Lord’s day) I really saw myself for exactly what I was, that everything changed. An infinitely clear mirror was held up to me in the exact moment of my massive collision with myself and with something else— Christ or God or Existence itself. It was only when I had ears to hear and eyes to see, all her truths became true.
