This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: 1 Corinthians 13:11 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about the power of coming full circle.
Recently, we discussed what is possible when we choose to shift our thoughts and words. Specifically, we talked about the wealthy woman the prophet Elisha would come to know.
Recall that when Elisha prophesied the woman would have a son the following year, she begged him not to lie to her. In other words, she asked him not to get her hopes up. As she talked to him, she trembled with fear.
Now, fast forward several years. This woman no longer trembled with fear. She had become a faithful matriarch and the rock of her home. When her only son died in her arms, she rose to the occasion as her faith told her not to claim his death.
As you read the passage, you even sense that her tone and posture had changed. This woman had come full circle. She had mastered how to move from a place of fear to one of faith.
Now I ask you: with what situation in your life do you need to come full circle? Where do you need to rise up to the occasion and let your faith replace your fears?
As you think about that, remember these words: “When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.” 1 Corinthians 13:11 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, press on until you come full circle.
