What trajectory does life seem to have you on? Look back over your life and consider the events, the accomplishments - both good and bad. What does the time line of your life tell you? Are you honoring the trajectory that life seems to place you on? If it's necessary, are you changing it to head in a direction that you intend for it to go?
Ya know when someone says something that you've heard many times before - maybe even had occasion to say or think before...but this time it hits a little harder? I was talking to a patient last week and she said, with tears streaming down her face, "I just don't know how I got here." She is in her twenties and facing a very long battle over her physical, emotional and spiritual health - because of choices made, by her and by her family in her childhood.
None of us want to end up somewhere by default. We want to get to choose where we end up, not just get there and wonder how, right?
So often all the answers to what we are meant for is right there, in the time line of our life. We just have to trust it, trust ourselves, trust our God. We need to have the courage to honor that trust, and move in the direction we were created for.
