Stewarding our time well

Sometimes, in order to move forward, we need to be able to carry our past well.

Writing a new chapter is not the same as starting a new book. What goes before shapes who we are today. However, we should never be defined by feelings such as shame.

Life is not linear. Instead, it’s more like a spirograph.

The crookedness of your unlikely life is not a failure. The wending paths aren’t mistakes. The looping route that looked like it was going nowhere was a switchback climbing a mountain. The jagged line that is your story tracks the path of God’s companionship and care. Who, indeed, can straighten what God has made crooked?”
