Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Reverse.

Having stared at the word for a good amount of time, I turned to the dictionary (merriam-webster) for some help:

  • opposite or contrary to a previous or normal condition
  • to turn completely about in position or direction

There have surely been times in my life where I made choices contrary to what would have been normal or right. In other words, they were unwise choices. They were the reverse of what should have been decided or settled upon.

At some point along the way, I had to turn completely around. In other words, I had to reverse the direction I was headed.

Using both definitions, there are times we need to reverse and return to where we went off course. We return to the Y in the road, or the crossroads, to see where our error was made and we get back on track.

Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls.” (Jeremiah 6:16, NASB)

The mind of man plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9, NASB)

Remember from whence you came.
Reverse direction,
and Return.
