It’s been quite awhile since my last update on life. And holy cow has God been dealing with crap in my life. It’s a crazy dichotomy of nothing new – a relentless boredom of sameness, and the sneaking suspicion that in ways only perceptible to him things are also changing and going forward.
Almost two months ago I started meeting with a Spiritual Formation group. It is challenging a lifetime of wrong perceptions and attitudes about God.
I’m still unemployed. While I haven’t had a lot of temp or freelance jobs, I do have wonderful friends who have connected me with lots of opportunities. I’m learning the reality of walking by faith, and not by sight. It’s thrilling… in a terrifying sort of way.
Also a couple months ago, I was given an opportunity to attend a missions conference in Thailand. It’s sponsored by the Narramore Christian Foundation, an organization that provides psychological services. Clearly an opportunity for “personal growth,” plus a bit of adventure. I leave later this week.
So. What I know is that God is taking me on a spiritual journey. Life’s the same, and yet continues to move forward.
