Oh, my goodness, it’s a crazy-busy week here at My Place.
What’s it like at yours?
You know the #RiskRejection posts I wrote? The ones telling you about
- deciding to put our old house on the market
- continuing to downsize our life–to upsize our faith
- preparing for a broken heart – and researching needs of children in my own community
- organizing workshops for the Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit – sharing Hope Unlimited’s successful residential model with orphan care providers worldwide
- talking taboo – and volunteering to be a CASA – and hoping to facilitate another movement in my community
All of those things are picking up speed this week. ALL of them!
The sign is in the yard, showings are happening, and prospects are on the table.
I continue to declutter “stuff” – and my mind.
I’ve started preliminary training to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for Children – and preparing for broken hearts.
Summit 2014 is next week – and we’d sure appreciate your prayers!
And if that’s not enough, I’ve been compiling a huge database and sending out invitations for that facilitating I’m trying to do…
But even with all of that going on – even while intentionally paying attention to Jesus’ commands upon my life and trying to be obedient –
you know what I can’t get off of my mind? This…
The big ol’ rock Little Sir picked up during Little Man’s school Easter Egg Hunt – and carried around for an hour!
And when a well-meaning adult took it from him and laid it aside… he waited patiently until she walked away – then picked it right back up. 🙂
I chuckled at his persistence – and watched perplexed… wishing I knew what he was thinking.
And ever since then, I’ve asked myself if there’s anything I’m “holding on to for dear life”. Anything I’m unwilling to give up. It’s only cute when you’re two…
Anything standing in my way of complete obedience…
Pride? Fear? Laziness? Giving in to distraction? Making excuses?
Anything standing in yours?
There’s only one ROCK worth holding on to…
Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my ROCK and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God;
he is my mighty ROCK, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.
I’ll be joining #TellHisStory@ Jennifer Dukes Lee.
