It’s been a while… I know.
I’d like to blame my blogging absence on busyness. I’m in the throes of an awesomely crazy speaking schedule. I could also point fingers at a looming manuscript deadline of December for the follow-up book to Untangled, called Uncommon (it will be on shelves July 1st… more on that later).
But if I were to be honest with you, I admit to not blogging because I have been discouraged at the deepest level. And I’ve thought so many times about stepping out of ministry… because it’s hard.
This year has been full of heart-thumping disappointments—the kind where you shake your head and say, what just happened?
I’m no stranger to being let-down by people. It’s just part of life… right? And I know the value of putting on your big girl pants and walking through hard circumstances. Life can be challenging. These are realities we all face, navigate and learn from.
But every once in a while, something or someone pierce those deeper places in your heart and it’s hard to reconcile. And you gasp at the truth of what just happened because it seems so impossible.
That’s where I’ve been over the past six months. Finding my footing and catching my breath has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.
