What YOU Taught Me About Breaking Camp
When God first gave gave me the Breaking Camp series, I was really apprehensive. I didn't want to do it. I didn't want to be reminded of people no longer in my life. I didn't want to think about transitions that didn't work out like I hoped.
I just didn't want to go there, but you made it easier.
Engaging you and this topic has been a beautiful, poignant, and overwhelming experience for me. Here's what I learned:
We want more Divine and less drama when we transition.
Change is hard enough, but the addition of people and their issues with our transitions can make it so unbearable that we might consider staying to avoid the drama. But no one wants to live like that. You can loose yourself trying to satisfy the desires of others when how God feels should be our ultimate concern.
We want peaceful transitions, and we want God to show us how.
The other thing you taught me? CHANGE IS COMING. TRUST THE PROCESS.
The first week of the series, we had technical difficulties getting the Facebook announcement out. For 6 hours, I tried with no result. Finally, I resigned to the idea that this one must only be meant for a few and God would make sure those who needed it would see it, but I was still disappointed.
Then, the weekend came and something told me to try again.
GOD used YOU to blow my mind.
Kenya. Ghana. Brazil. Ireland. China. The Universal Church wants to hear what the Lord has to say about new beginnings. Within twenty-four hours, that post was read by over 200 people from all over the world, and the numbers have increased with every post since. I am humbled that He would use me - a 50-year old single mom in Dallas , Texas - to bless others in this way. It is my privilege to spend time with you, and I will never be the same because of you.
Life is different for me than it was 30 days ago. I didn't know how change would come, but it has. The next step is publishing my book. It has not been an easy process, but I understand better than ever before that change is part of the process.
I have broken FREE.
I am trusting GOD now more than I have in my entire life.
I will run on and see what the end will be.
More details to come.
And thank you for your prayers during my brief illness.
In the next few weeks, we will be discussing how to do the hard things God asks of us.
See you next week.
