So many things in life are cyclical: Day, then night, then day again; Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, only to repeat. In our personal lives, we fall, then get up, then fall again, then get back up again. Even the histories of nations repeat themselves. There is a cycle of prosperity, pride, God humbling us, our repentance, our obedience, which leads to God prospering us again…And God is so patient and ready to forgive if with all our hearts we truly come to Him. Where are you in the cycle? Where am I? Heading from hot to cold? or from clay to gold? The goal of life for me is to strive to always be heading towards Him. There‚Äôs no joy going the other way.
