Have you come full circle, knowing now how to get life right, or are you still wandering aimlessly on your journey without a clue?
November’s Awakening, Day 30
We know we’re coming full circle with God when we stand at a very similar crossroad where we made such a mess of life before, but this time we take a different road.
—Beth Moore, “Believing God”
We trust, instead, in the power of God and the strength of the Holy Spirit and know that our lives have meaning and power and eternality because God’s Spirit is greater than the spirit of this world.
—Beverly J. Van Kampen and Margery A. Lembke, “The GodSense Journey: Exploring Sacred Pathways”
We are not here by chance nor are our lives meaningless, but we have eternal purpose and essential effects in our impact in other’s lives and this world in which we live. You have a reason for being. God planned to use you powerfully from the very beginning and it is up to you to walk down His road. Each crossroad brings a new opportunity to hear his still small voice and follow in the way you should go. Each obstacle is another chance to overcome where you’ve succumbed before. Each battle of resistance opens a new door to victory. It’s a new tomorrow with a new determination to get it right. It’s time to come full circle—wrong choices become right, pessimism becomes optimism, despair becomes hope, weakness becomes strength, failure becomes victory, and quitting becomes perseverance to the very end. Faith and trust coming into maturity, coming into the fullness of His power, coming full circle from our limitedness to His infinite—that’s His plan and that’s His empowerment in us.
