Life is predictably unpredictable.
I have learned this once again this past little while. I have felt the quiet, yet powerful promptings of the spirit telling me to do something. I didn't want to listen. I didn't know what the future would look like if I followed through, but like many things in my life, I don't always know in the beginning what God has for me at the end. This was true when I first started this blog. It's been about thirteen years when I decided to start recording and sharing our lives online. At times it felt like a full-time job, as I kept records of posts and posts I wanted to write. Often I found if I was not studying my scriptures the words did not come out. My time here was often sacred.
So when the prompts to stop writing and stop sharing came I questioned and wondered if I was hearing correctly, but with each decision to move forward and delete an account I received another confirmation that I was doing what I had been asked. I'm embarrassed at how difficult walking away from social media has been for me and I will miss writing here, but I love God and have promised Him I will do whatever He asks. Even this.
Today as I write my final post I express my gratitude to each of you who have been part of my journey here. I have come to know and have beautiful relationships with so many people as a result of my time writing and sharing here. I am forever changed by this experience and the opportunities for growth that it brought to my life.
Two thousand years ago two men walked away from their nets (see Mark1:16-18 and John 1:38-39 and accepted Christ's invitation to "Come and see". This invitation has penetrated my heart through this process. I don't know what He wants me to do at this point. I don't know what it looks like, but I am excited to see where this next part of our journey takes us.
I hope that in your own lives you will accept His invitation to "Come and see" in your lives. Each time I do I find greater peace and understanding. I know you can as well. Through Christ, we can do all things.
