The change is becoming greater now. Through many dangers, toils and snares you have already come; they have altered you. His promise has altered you as well, as has your living by it. You notice the difference not only in your circumstances, but in your very identity. You are learning your new name, one that you did not choose, but which was given to you.
Take a rest on your journey to read these passages and ponder this question:
Genesis 17:1-5, 15-16
Luke 1:13, 20-22, 59-64
In what ways has your journey changed who you are?
