I’m in a weird place.

An uncomfortable, divided sort of place.

Like I’m in the in-between.

Like I’m in limbo.

And in this place it is easy to be distracted.  Or to choose distraction rather.

And I really want to write a super long, thought-provoking, profound blog about what I’m learning here.  I want to write about every thought and emotion and blessing about being called to the in-between.  Because the Lord is teaching me.  A whole stinkin lot.  And I’d love to share it.

But no matter how hard I try, words just aren’t really coming together.  And I have class in 15 minutes so I don’t really have the time to force it.

So instead, I’ll just say that right now I am called to the in-between.  I have no earthly idea which direction the Lord is calling me to…in multiple areas of my life.  But instead of choosing to distract myself or choosing to be frustrated by it, I will glorify the Lord here in this uncomfortable, divided sort of place.  Because it’s where I am.

So please hold me accountable to that.

‘Thanks, friends.

“Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth;
give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. 
I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart;
I will glorify your name forever. 
For great is your love toward me;
you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.” 
Psalm 86:11-13

One thought on “

  1. In a very non-encouraging statement, I’ll just let you know that I’ve felt like I’ve been in a now-and-not-yet, in-between kind of place since about 1988. Sure, some of the bigger life-questions got answered (spouse/children/vocation/etc.) but there’s been a lot of tension between who I am and who I’m “supposed” to be going on two full decades.

    Sorry, sister. Wish I could’ve been more encouraging…
