The Time of Becoming
Advent: arrival, appearance, emergence or occurrence, the arrival of a notable person or thing.
What are you waiting for, still?
What is the light at the end of the way that you keep pursuing, going towards?
Like the shepherds followed a star, is there a possibility you hope to see still?
My word for 2018 has been “still”. In the beginning, it represented a courageous decision to pursue a certain writing goal.
That I could still, it wasn’t too late.
I’m still writing; but, changes came my way and my book idea will never be the same.
I’m in the phase of stillness, resting and listening to know, which way God, do you want me to go?”
Tell me what to say, Lord.
Continuing in the Book of Luke today, another chapter full of guidance and illustration, historical retelling of what Jesus did before he died.
My spirit has been a little weary, thoughts around trauma trying to take over. I’m recalling today that this is the year I, with the help of some strong therapy, decided I could live healed, that I could let go and be healed.
The year it became my choice to forgive.
My friend said yesterday, that evil still comes back to try to play.
I think she’s quite right, it’s Advent, the season of light and peace, it’s only natural evil creeps in, shows up even louder, harder, mean and determined.
Has to, it is harder now than before to take my peace away. I’m no longer disabled.
“When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your disability.” And he laid his hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and she glorified God.”
Luke 13:12-13 ESV
Able to seek light and freedom, to not revisit the darkness.
To God be the glory for my emergence year, still.
I’m linking up with others here at Five Minute Friday, prompted by the word, “Still”.
