Seasons change, not just on the calendar, but in our lives. I now have a college student, a 9th grader and a 7th grader and I can’t for the life of me figure out how that happened. I was just pregnant last week. After 12 years serving in our church’s children’s ministry I stepped down this past May. It has been such a huge part of my life that it was hard to leave but I know it is what God wanted me to do. I love the local church, I love my church and I don’t have any intention of not serving in some capacity but it will certainly look very different than it has in the past.
I sense Him calling me to other things. I sense that He is calling me to relationships. Most importantly with Him but to really put people over projects. To spend more time building relationships and making our home a place of refuge for my family and for others.
I sense Him calling me to a different place with Missions, specifically International Missions. Not sure what that looks like yet but I know in His time He will make it clear. He gave me an awesome opportunity to be a part of a women’s trip to Spain this past June. It was life changing in a very different way than my previous trips to Africa. This trip was filled with a lot of dealing with my stuff and He showed me so much in so many ways and through so many people, especially the women on this trip that blessed me beyond measure.
So as I ponder and pray over what He would have me do I will continue to enjoy this new season that He has laid out before me.
