This summer I am doing something new. A something new that is unusual for me and makes me really uncomfortable. Mostly because this “something new” is not my idea. It’s God’s idea, and if I am honest I much prefer living in accordance with what I think is best for me.
On June 15th, I will begin my first ever sabbatical. I will step aside from my work with Holy Yoga for a four month period to um….rest. Rest? I am not sure what that is, but that is what I have been called to.
And rest feels wildly fear filled.
By definition, a sabbatical is a “sabbath or any extended period of leave from one’s customary work, especially for rest, to acquire new skills or training”. It sounds luxurious, doesn’t it? It sounds free and exhilarating and full of possibility….except if you find yourself, like me, completely dependent on a role or your contributions to give you your value and worth.
So this, friends, marks a bit of a turning point in our time together. If you will still allow me into your lives for brief moments on Monday’s and Wednesday’s, we will journey together into the unknown. Into why God takes even the really great things in our lives away for a period of time to expose what we really believe about who He is and who we are in relationship to who He says He is.
We serve a good God, friends.
