The Dry Season

Ever been in a wilderness?  People of faith know what I mean.  It's dry.  It's hot, and it feels like there is NOTHING happening...I think I've been here for a couple of months...and some days are scorching....simply rough.

It's a season.  And it's a season I will walk through and learn things I will NOT learn any other way.  It's a place that comes upon us all from time to time...A testing and threshing out...

I quietly cling to the vision and direction I'm called to.  I carry hope and help.  I've still got it.  I'm an invitation to a better way of eating and living.  I'm still there... and I invite you to lean against my faith... All of that is still right there and intact.

But this place I'm in is not where I was and not where I am going...and it's THE GAP....my future weighs upon me.  It pulls at me.  It's so dissatisfied with today....My future wants to be HERE now! The vision I carry in my heart to see others revived and healed...it grows deeper...

Others are moving forward and I'm in this place...The wilderness....I suspect it's where so much will be added and where I'll be made!  I truth the timing of God...and just carry around this heaviness...Because it will make me stronger...Better and more able for the places ahead....
