Product Description

Our lives progress moment by moment. Woven together, these slivers of time shape our present. But what if one single moment changed everything about you from that second on?

Peering into the lives of David, Rebekah, Jacob, Rachel, Deborah, Nehemiah, Peter and many more, as well as through the personal watershed moments in her life and the lives of several women who have written their own stories, Gari Meacham offers a bold invitation to pay attention to the revelations God gives us in a single moment of time.

Publisher's Description

Our lives consist of moments.  Stitched together like the seams on a coat, these moments cloak us in awareness and possibility.  But what if we miss our moments?   What if we live in a bland state of wandering?  Seeking growth, seeking passion—but missing the moments in which God tries to pull the thread through the cloth in the way we’ve dreamed of?

Watershed moments are the turning points in our lives brought on by circumstances which stop us in our tracks.  A new direction; a fresh perspective; an answered prayer; a humble surrender—these are the moments that redirect us; leaving us profoundly changed.

Through a progression of seven types of Watershed moments (the Watersheds of change, unraveling, rebuilding, purpose, abandoning [control], overcoming, and belief), Gari portrays life as a series of moments we encounter where we can face or turn away from change.  A life marked by Watershed moments starts from the place where we live desperately hoping for some kind of new and freeing adventure.

Through the lives of Abraham, David, Rebekah, Jacob, Rachel, Nehemiah, Peter and many more, as well as through personal Watershed moments in her life and the lives of several women who have written their own stories, Watershed Moments is a bold invitation to pay attention to the revelation God gives in the twinkling of a second at our moments of change.  God uses watershed moments to position us to go one direction or another.  It’s at these Watersheds we utter, “I can’t go back.  This moment will change me forever.”

    Why did I choose this book:

    The subtitle of Watershed Moments by Gari Meacham is what caught my eye - "Turning points that change the course of our lives." I'm personally interested in learning how to be content and attentive in the present and thought this book might help me to that end. Meacham describes a "watershed" moment as "the moments God uses to mark us, move us and alter us for good," "the moments we encounter God," or "a point from which you can't turn back." She uses Biblical stories and examples as she describes seven kinds of watershed moments: change, awareness, rebuilding, control, approval, overcoming and belief.

    Notables:

    *Watershed moments of change are often preceded by a period of feeling stuck. This helps to reframe those periods of life; when it seems like God is absent, like nothing is happening - that is a clue that God is giving a "gift of time" to teach and prepare us, to allow us to seek Him, pray and develop belief, trust and obedience.

    *Watershed moments of awareness are when God gifts us with insight into ourselves and others. We can let go of over-analyzing and striving for our own understanding and rest of God's understanding, then acknowledge and accept what we've been "bestowed" with and count them as blessings that "give way to truth."

    *Meacham frames watershed moments of rebuilding around developing Godly vision or "vision crafting." She suggests that we do this unabashedly, visioning what God has planned, and looking for what God is building knowing that he is building something worthy. This is not an effortful process but rather recognizing the initial inkling of a vision then praying about it. This can be a long term vision or just hope for the next moment

    *Meacham's discussion of watershed moments of control included a great explanation of godly submission. Surrendering to God means acknowledging that we can't control everything, we can't do it alone but we CAN do it with God's help. Meacham suggests women move from trying to control to being an influence - embracing the gift of opportunities to build people up - and the end result, which God desires for us, is peace.

    *Many of us struggle with being people-pleasers or letting approval from others guide our actions. Meacham suggests that watershed moments of approval from God help us to break free from the captivity of living for others, and allow us to live contentedly in God's approval.

    *Watershed moments of overcoming any evil or negative influence are marked by embracing God's authority and having the ability to respond to any circumstance with calm resolve.

    Bottom line:

    Though the book doesn't always flow smoothly, Meacham's scripture examples and discussion prompt the reader to reflect on one's own watershed moments and move closer to fulfilling our godly purpose and ultimately experiencing the joy and freedom that God desires for each of His children.
