I’m in transition. again. I think. I’ve got a decision to make about God’s will, service, direction, music, time, commitment, family . . .
I’m flashing back. deja vu. This post was my first on my Pragmatic Communion Blog. It was originally published in September of 2005.
this is what you get when you combine:
a mid-life crisis
(I turned 29 just 12 short years ago!),
a few good books
(okay, more than a few),
a whole lot of soul searching
(my husband LOVED the conversations – all 4,263 of them.)
a background of seemingly unrelated skills, education & experience
(God can use anything, right?)
and two years of listening and waiting on God
(I hate it when God teaches me patience – again.)
I’d like to tell you my plan, but you know what they say:
“How do you make God laugh?”
“Make a plan.”
I’ll tell you how I got here, keep you up to date on what’s going on and post my musings on what might happen in the future. Your guess is as good as mine. Here’s what I pray more than anything else:
“Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you . . . ”
(I do eventually stop.)
Here’s what I pray next:
“Lord, please use people, circumstances, your Word and your Spirit to guide me in the direction I need to go in order to glorify you . . . and please, please, please SLAM the door in my face if I even BEGIN to move in direction you don’t want me to go.”
Just be careful what you pray for.
(I’ll tell you about my recent nosebleed in a later post).
