It’s been a difficult week. Saying goodbye is never easy when it’s to someone or something you love. But…
Sometimes you have to lay down that thing, that person or people, or calling, in order to move forward into new ways to grow.
The conference I founded and have directed for five years has come to the end of it’s run. I heard many say as they left the event last weekend that this was the best one yet. It’s always good to end on a high note, and with comments like that you might think….just one more year?
No. When it’s time, it’s time. And this applies to so many areas of our lives, whether we are ending something or beginning a new thing. The important thing to know is that we can’t stand still, we must keep stretching and reaching.
We listen to God’s voice and discern what path we are to take next.
Sometimes that means saying goodbye to precious possessions, like this conference I’ve worked so hard to bring to the writers in this area. It’s been such a huge part of my life, I sometimes wonder how God will fill the void. Then I remember how good He is at filling voids – it’s His specialty.
Have you said goodbye to something and are still waiting for a new direction? Listen to His voice and pay attention to the dreams He has set in your heart. In time, you’ll know what I have discovered…we must stop thinking and living temporally and learn to think and live eternally.
