Re-entering the Chaos

After a hiatus that has lasted over two years, I am back in the world of Facebook. Shocking to some, I know. Anyone who knows me knows that I have been anything but silent, but it was just one of those seasons where I needed to pull back some from the noise that sometimes comes with an online, ever-so-verbal community. While the break has been priceless, I find myself in a season of transition.


For one thing, my world is getting bigger, even though it appears my community will be getting smaller. Preparing to move to the rural community of Thomson, Georgia, my life is downsizing in terms of people per square mile; at the same time, I have joined the ranks of a larger population: renewed dreamer (a.k.a. church planter’s wife). There is something about putting our whole life in a leap of faith that stirs dead places and calls me to listen closely because I know that God is always at work but I want to know that He has been at work in me. The real beauty is discovering that any dream He gives me isn’t really about me.

If I wait until I have total agreement from others—or until I no longer have the capacity to disappoint anyone—I will never move forward. Instead, there remains this persistent call to live for an audience of One and this very strong desire to live real and see others do the same. All the while, His message has been very clear: die to the opinions of man and love others extravagantly.

So, here I am.
