Full circle means to complete a cycle, return to its beginnings.
I feel like that would be the chapter title of my life story I’m currently living in.
I’m back living in the old home I grew up in. With my dad. It’s where I pretty much started, and probably where I’ll end up.
Some of the closest people I am presently surrounded by are old friends from my teenage years. Rekindled friendships from Facebook connections. Guys and girlfriends alike. Friends that had gone in different directions for many years, but have recently been brought back into my life. Our paths have once again crossed.
I don’t believe that’s entirely coincidental. For whatever the reason, I choose to believe that is where I must have veered off course, and God is giving me do overs. Another chance to do it right. Follow His chosen path. This time with the wisdom of maturity.
Full circle. Taking you back where it once began.
I’m not so sure I’m doing it any better this time. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m still not on the path God has set out for me. I feel like my life currently resembles a mouse on the mouse wheel treading away but getting nowhere. Wanting desperately to get on the correct path, seeing it in front of me, but just not able, or maybe better stated, just not ready to take that leap of faith off the wheel! The wheel has become my comfort zone!
I see what I think I want lying just ahead. But maybe it’s not necessarily what God thinks I need. So I remain in the same situation until my lesson is learned, and I get it right.
So here I am as I patiently wait. On my best laid plans (or so I think.) to come to fruition. And keep on treading. Or until I get brave enough to take that leap of faith off the wheel To totally trust God with my life and my future.
How about you?
Have you ever felt like you have come full circle with something or someone in your life?
Time to look and decide whether you want another round on the mouse wheel or are ready to jump off.
Let’s all let God do a new thing in our lives. Let’s not just spin our wheels like our friend the mouse. Let’s step off and see what adventures God puts before us. On the right path.
It’s fearful. The unknown. Something different than our norm. But God’s word warns us not to be afraid. In fact, “fear not” is mentioned 365 times in the bible! Imagine that! That’s the very same number as we have days in a year! A fear not for every single day! Now that’s no coincidence!
Just think. If we’ll take that jump, instead of falling. We might just fly! 🙂 That’s what faith is all about.
Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
