Coming Full Circle

“…I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” – Deuteronomy 30:19b

I was registering to become a professional member of SistahFaith (btw, an awesome org with a powerful new book release) when one of the questions on the application asked, “In what areas of your life are you trying to come full circle?”

Woah.

This was my response.

“I’m in a lifelong process of reconciling my fears with my faith, my intellect with my passion, my pursuit of success with my pursuit of significance. I’ve been standing at this intersection for a while now and it is time to choose in order to reach the next level of my assignment.”

The words just kind of poured out of me. Simple truths escaping an often crowded mind. The tension between all of these things has truly been my journey. To me, coming full circle means (re)discovering the woman God created me to be…the original blueprint. Before I took it upon myself to conduct unnecessary renovations and reconstructions with limited knowledge or tools. Before the distractions and sediment of my life became my preoccupation. So, yes, I can talk about my past, the sins made against me, and all of the “root” issues until I’m blue in the face…and I probably will because I think there is value in some of that…however, how much more important is it to be clear about where you stand TODAY? What are the choices you face TODAY? Where do you go from HERE?

This moment is really all we have. And every 60 seconds, even that is gone…
