I know you know what I mean.
When you think you are following a path....
you are affirmed in a certain way,
you think all are on board,
and the messages get mixed....
and it all gets confusing.
Don't mean to be cryptic, because this is the kind of situation that could happen anywhere. Anytime, with anyone.
My prayer these days is to not over-react.
My prayer these days is to not feel threatened.
My prayer these days is to be strong and confident, and, in the words of my dear friend, which I am not stealing, but just embracing in the moment, is to be fierce and fabulous for Jesus.
Or at least,
believe that Jesus thinks I am fierce and fabulous...
sometimes I wonder.
I am a tree, with deep roots.
My roots feel a little shaken loose right now. I am not uprooted, I am still a living tree with deep roots.
Maybe just a surprised tree--
Like, maybe how trees feel when a limb is broken off,
or a huge storm whips it around....
good, great God....
please hear my prayer,
and hold me close.
