This week, my family has spent some time in Corpus Christi relaxing, catching up with family and friends, and trying to enjoy some time together. In the midst of conversations and meetings, I was struck with some of the best advice I think I’ve been given throughout this entire journey.
Somewhere, somehow, you have to try to find some peace and rest in the midst of all of this so that you’re ready to get back to work when the time comes.
And that caused me to spend some considerable time pondering that idea. The truth of the matter is that I’ve spent so much time running frantically, that I haven’t considered the possibility that this could be a sort of “forced” Sabbath – a rest on the bench before being sent back into the game.
So whatever time I have left in this “in-between” stage of my journey, I am intentionally going to find some rest and enjoy my time in his presence and provision. I am still not sure what direction he’s leading me, but I couldn’t be more excited to see.
Here’s to finding some Shalom.
