After months of chrysalis, I have the chain shattering words to reveal all that has been taking wing in my life.
Serving on the mission field for 5 years as a young family, we loved Jesus with all of our heart. We saw missions as the best way to serve Him. We were seeking Jesus but couldn't find him to the depths our hearts longed for. We both knew something was missing, words never uttered, but deep down, knowng.
Searching, we voraciously devoured every book, new teachings, attended conferences. God knew our hungry hearts. He called us out of a nation to another, back home. A way of life that defined us, surrendered to know Him.
Delivered to the doorstep of a just Jesus focussed ministry. Not just a teaching to tell us how to do it, a breathing vessel to show us step by step, hand in hand. Shifting our gaze, washing our minds in the Word, being willing to do what Jesus said to do.
At first, I cringed and fought. I knew life as a caterpillar and the munch of the leaves. Slowly, I realized .... I was created to fly free.
Our family, our marriage, our children, we wanted it better. Now it is. We knew inside something was missing. Nothing is missing now. And you can catch the glimmer of my wings as I soar.
"What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly." - Richard Bach
