I am in a season of new growth and as exciting as it is, it also means saying goodbye to parts of me. Some are good things, some are bad and others are maybe not the very best, but they are known and comfortable and it’s scary to let them go.
I’m not particularly good at change. Transitions are very clunky in my house. And walking into unknowns is at the bottom of my list of favorite things.
So this place I willingly stand today – seeing hope for new things but unsure of how to let go of the old with wisdom and integrity – is very uncomfortable.
But I believe in a God who is in control, who is faithful and kind and good. Who is with me and offers grace and forgiveness to cover over my failings. Who whispers truth and identity and when I listen and obey, it sounds like freedom.
So I’ll keep pressing on. Trusting, listening, obeying, wrestling, telling the truth, paying attention, ever hopeful that my honesty with you will help you find freedom, too. You are not alone and this hard work is good.
