Being Brave…

For more than a year the Lord has been gently nudging me to do something that I did not do not want to do. Over the years I have shared bits and pieces of my personal journey through grief. But I know that I am supposed to share some deeper stories, some of the darker and most troubling moments of my journey. These pieces of my story impact more than just me. So I must carefully guard others while sharing.

The truth?

I am not really interested in doing any of this.  But three weeks ago, somewhere around 30,000 feet while sitting in seat 20C, I say yes. It was as if the Lord was literally inside my head saying, “NOW! Now is the time to share. Will you do what I am asking?”

And I said, “Yes. OK, I will do it.”

Then I wanted to throw up.

While saying yes to the Lord may give a sense of peace, it also brings a great deal of fear. I have to remember that I do not walk this path alone.

Sharing this piece of me will not be easy. And it will be hard for me to stay focused. I don’t yet know what this will look like but I am stepping out in faith and being brave.

Today, I am at GraceTable beginning the journey of sharing more deeply. Join me over there where I am also sharing a recipe that uses leftover turkey!
