Carrots

I have been feeling like Ruth lately because I have bound myself to this new church and it has caused me to leave my comfort zone and forge into a new area. Sometimes it feels like dating again which I haven’t done in 20+ years. I meet people and hope they like me. I invite them to join me despite my fear of being rejected. I have left the comfort of my Faith UMC family to be part of a new family that is plagued with uncertainty. I have a few people who are as excited about the church as I am but I need so many more.
God continues to surprise and humble me in small miracles. I have been connected to people in random ways. I have seen things happen that could not have happened if not for the presence of the Holy Spirit. Not just with me, but even through others around me. I continue to be in just the right place to meet just the right people. I told someone that I resemble the donkey with a stick tied to its back that has a carrot tied to the end. These carrots dangle in front of me and keep me moving forward. I walk through the fear and uncertainty. I step out on faith knowing that God is at work through me and with me. And I slowly move forward dragging behind me my fears, worries and misgivings. I can not remember a time when I felt more connected to God.Facebooktwitterby feather
