I can’t remember any part of my former self that actually embraced “stillness.” The need to go, go, go, seemed to be hardwired in me and everyone around me.
If I could, I would encourage my former self to be quiet, to wait on God, and to listen for His still, small voice. I can only imagine the amazing things that might have been revealed during those times of intimacy with the Lord!
No matter what we wish we could tell our former selves, the truth is, all we have is now. We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow or even the next hour. So, let’s remember these truths as we move forward, knowing that He who began a good work in us will complete it. (Philippians 1:6)
Gracious God, thank You for being so full of grace and mercy. Thank you for times of growth and maturity when we learn lessons of faith and life. Continue to guide us, Lord, in all truth, until we are settled in You—our strength and our Redeemer. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
