I hope everyone is well!
Here in my little corner of the world, we have just enjoyed a weekend of unseasonable rain, so I am unseasonably well!
Today I begin another NEXT CHAPTER: moving from my former-job-that-no-longer-exists to a wonderful, if slightly intimidating, three month contract doing what I most love to do, with a team I respect and adore.
It’s still a scary moment:
The future remains an unknown.
I still have many things beyond the job to decide – BIG things.
I’m still trying to recover from The Lifewreck, for goodness’ sake, and am always on the lookout for anything that will drop me back into it!
And, of course, I want to be sure I do the best job possible for these lovely people who have put their trust in me!
But it’s also an opportunity to grow my trust and faith in a situation that is arguably one of the bigger tests I’m going to face:
Other than losing a loved on, or having a life threatening illness, this is probably one of the toughest times of transition I’m likely to encounter outside The Lifewreck.
So I wanted to take a moment to encourage everyone facing a next chapter – because we all are, whether they are BIG chapters, or fairly little ones – to live the WHOLE of it.
Not JUST the horror.
Not JUST the excitement.
But every piece that goes into making this chapter a full and vibrant part of a life that supports moving into abundance and shalom.
