I have never felt more “in between” in my life. I am between youth and adulthood, between jobs, between God Sized Dreams and guaranteed security. I feel like I’m floating somewhere in the middle of worthy and worthless, assured and ashamed, broken and blessed.
What happens here? What does life look like in the “between” – when hard choices come cushioned in soft blessings and the life we once knew and loved is taken away, leaving a life we’re realizing we desire to know and love even more? What does this walk with God look like in this space that feels so empty and full all at the same glorious time?
It looks like grace in the “in between.”
Between coffee and daytime TV the hard work of the day happens now – instead of at office desks in corporate offices, planners and pens crawl across a kitchen table still sticky from last night’s toddler meltdown at dinner. The writing that used to happen in the leftover hours now happens….any time I can get to it. It’s not where we imagined we would be at this point in our lives, praying over the weeks between paychecks, trusting God to fill in the blanks and open doors.
What does this place look like?
It looks like closing my eyes and letting God lead me, trusting that even here – even in the middle spaces that seem so confusing and overwhelming, He knows exactly where to place my next step.
