I have had this sense that we are on a threshold. Personally I feel it in my own life. I sense it for my marriage, my family, my church, my community, and I do have to say, in a connected sense, to the whole world around us.
Other people may call it a tipping-point.
Whatever you would like to describe this precipice, then name it.
For us personally, we are awaiting news from immigration that guides our next steps. This is not about going anywhere, but more about how to position our family over the next few years that secures their long term future, and sets our church up for it‘s promised future also.
We are having conversations within our marriage now about decisions that no longer just impact the dreams given to Andrew and I, but we sense this legacy for our daughters. Just like the Daughters of Z.
We have been in such an unknown season. So in it, we knew to dig deep on all the NORMAL.
When things feel out of your control it is really important to do the normal, basic things well. Eat, sleep, exercise, connect, lean into your spiritual disciplines etc.
And then why don’t you name the emotions you are feeling. Name the threshold.
Yes you can name the promise, but how about the threshold.
At any time you can ask yourself: At which threshold am I now standing? At this time in my life, what am I leaving? Where am I about to enter? What is preventing me from crossing my next threshold? What gift would enable me to do it?
