Standing At The Cross Roads

Standing At The Cross Roads January 24, 2016

My life often seems to be a dizzying blur of activity – homeschooling, mothering, housekeeping, writing, blogging, radio show, CrossFit coaching, speaking, plus the rest of life. It’s a swirl of activity that makes my ADD brain happy and tends to keep me out of trouble. Then came this week’s trip to Portland, OR to record a new round of shows, only to come home and discover that many of the activities which make up my life seem to be wrapping themselves up and ending.

It’s an unusual place to find myself in – a place of silence with not much on the horizon.

I’m not really that much of a planner. I’m definitely a dreamer though. I usually daydream a bit and let the ideas marinate until I’m ready to charge forward towards a newly discovered “life-long” goal. I’m not sure to make of this moment in my life.  I don’t even know enough about where I’m going to be able to imagine the possibilities of what might be when I get there. It’s an exciting time, to be sure. The more things wind down, the more possibilities open up.

I keep reminding myself that God was not in the noise, or the earthquake, or the fire; but He was in the silence.

As I sit here looking at the now gaping holes in my schedule for February and beyond, I’m trying to not panic as I strive to listen to the silence.

Would you mind praying for me today? I don’t need for God to tell me where I’m headed, but just to make sure that the sign-posts along the way are obvious and easy to read. I need him to be Vegas sign, neon lights clear. I’m not smart enough for subtle. I need Him to give me a gentle shove and send me on my way. I’m trying to be patient, but I’m also excited for the journey to begin.
