You suddenly forget that time exists. You’re breathing in and out, in and out; then the feeling of pay attention becomes heavy like a winter coat. The hypnosis of “this” moment won’t break. Nothing seems more vital, and nothing else is crossing your mind. You are trying to take it all in. What is this?
One definition of pivotal describes it as of vital or critical importance. The word “moment” supports the substance of “time” from various angles which stresses its fleeting existence. The initial definition defines moment as instant. We allow life to happen too quickly sometimes, and in that quickness we get only a moment to really plug into those times that were meant to impart a key message to us, direct us another way, or stop us from making the biggest mistake of our lives.
It is time to slow it down. Yesterday I went to a business event that was clearly my pivotal moment. The drive and ambition in that room was off the charts!!! I could not sit still enough to capture all that was being said. This moment was for me. This business event imparted to me a message that I have been hearing in my spirit a long time; move! Along with the confirmation of it being the time to “grow up on a whole other level”. Simultaneously God was confirming for me know that I had everything that I needed to allow the greatness IN me, to become the greatness that is now IN the earth doing what it was meant to do, and helping who it was destined to help. Ideas began to flow. My heart was standing at attention. In that moment truth was confronting me. I have not been doing what I am supposed to be doing. I don’t have an excuse.
How comfortable are you with confrontation? How comfortable are you with having to confront yourself? Have you done so lately? A true pivotal moment will cause this. You will have to confront yourself. You will have to get comfortable with doing it. You must do it sooner, rather than later or you could miss it. Do not miss not one more of your pivotal moments! Open your eyes and ears to what is being shown or spoken to you. God does have a plan for you. Wisdom is what we need to understand when we are in that moment because it won’t always be a feeling attached to it.
