I've been fascinated with sunsets lately
Probably because sunsets mean the day is slowing down and things are wrapping up - coming to an end.
I'm in that season.
Of things slowing down and coming to an end - It's an interesting place to be.
When friends ask me how I'm doing - my usual response is "I'm fine, just thinking through next steps after graduation." But if I was to be completely honest I would tell them that I'm struggling with being still; with letting God lead me; with being in this in - between space.
In - between spaces mean relinquishing control - They mean surrender.
Surrender is uncomfortable.
But surrender is also the space where grace abounds and where joy overflows.
Joy in Surrender
What if this in - between space is an opportunity for me to let go of the life that I thought I'm supposed to be living, choosing instead to follow Christ anywhere, any time, any cost?
What if in - between spaces are an opportunity to understand the beauty and freedom found in truly living in light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
Maybe in - between spaces are places where freedom reigns and we experience fierce love that redeems and restores and points us towards the One who spoke this earth - this time - into existence.
