The following is from Today’s Turning Point.

    Isaiah 40: 12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, measured heaven with a span and calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance?
     There is a piece of spinach stuck in your teeth from lunch that no one tells you about, and when you see it in the mirror three hours later, you wonder why no one bothered to tell you. It’s too prominent to have been missed. If only this were only true of spinach. Constructive feedback is hard to come by.  

As we stand on the cusp of a new year, we have the opportunity to pause and reflect on the past year. Although loved ones sometimes sugarcoat their feedback, we can find clarity in seeking God’s perspective.

He measures the waters of the earth and knows every crevice of your soul. He sees and speaks truth.
If we don’t take time to do this, our years blur together and we miss the story God is weaving with our lives. As we review our year, seeking His clarity, we find growth to celebrate and missed opportunities to mourn. Reflecting on the past can strengthen us for the future as we seek God’s vision and direction for the upcoming year. Allow Him to lovingly lead you forward.

All day long have I toiled and striven; but now in the stillness of heart and in the clear light of Thine eternity, I would ponder the pattern my life has been weaving.’
