“And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they left for their own country by another road” (Matthew 2:12).
How often we find our plans firmly in place, only to be challenged and changed by any number of circumstances. Like the magi, we may find our lives transformed by events beyond our imaginings, only to have them be altered again and again. It can be both wonderful and a little scary to find ourselves living in openness to change. As you embark on a new year, invite the Spirit of God to guide you – even a little more than you may at first be comfortable with. Open yourself to the idea that sometimes God may need to take you down new and different paths.(Seasons of the Spirit™ Wood Lake Publishing)
