>Prompt for today:
Defining Moment. Describe a defining moment or a series of events that has affected your life this year.
Eh… Is it just me or does this prompt sound a little bit repetitive? I feel like I’ve answered this question at least twice… I almost feel as if I’m expected to have some sort of Lifetime-worthy story or moral here, some pearl of wisdom to pass on to the individual who stumbles on my blog. And I know that there are a lot of you.
I dont view my year in terms of small little bite-sized pieces. I see larger things, goals and battles. Wins and losses. Many of you who frequently lurk on this blog know that through this year, I’ve undergone some major trial and healing. And yes, sometimes you do have to take each moment at a time. But I prefer to look back and see things in some sort of a larger framework. My life isn’t measured in just days or weeks, but in years. Decades even.
Someday, I’ll look back on 2010 and I won’t see moments. I’ll see this as the year that the Lord healed my heart or the year where I faced some of my deepest fears. Moments are great but it really doesn’t compare to the larger picture.
