The Weaving Grows …
How many turning points have you had in your life time? How many forks in the road have you encountered? How many crossroads have you stood at and pondered the multiply directions you had to choose from? How many times has the road ahead of you taken an unexpected turn or a sharp curve and you could not see what would lie ahead. How often has the road remained straight?
Our lives are filled with turns, twists and curves. Some of them we control, many we do not. Turning points can lead to wonderful changes in our lives or be filled with difficult challenges or often a combination of both. Sometime when we take the wrong turn, we can make a u-turn and revisit our decision. Other times the only choice is to keep moving through it.
Our Lenten Season will focus on the theme “Turning Points.” We will look at various stories where Jesus was in the midst of a turning point and faced both the blessing and challenge of answering the call of to love unconditionally. The image of the labyrinth will be part of our journey with its turns that lead us deeper into relationship with God.
The other images that come to mind as I contemplate “Turning Points” are road signs. Take a few moments and reflect on the various road sign pictured. When in your life have you found yourself at such a point? How did you experience the presence of God? How did you make a decision? How did you move through the challenging turns? How did you faith grow and deepen? Blessings, Wendy
