Flight Plan

So I'm feeling the itch of a big dream tugging on my awareness. I can feel my engine idling, getting ready to take off somewhere. I only have two problems.

I don't know where I'm going, and I have a whole lot of baggage. Ok, maybe baggage isn't the right word. Obligations. Distractions. Requirements. Restrictions. Kids. Family. Lists. People who need me.

Being that it is summer, and these things are part of the protocol for motherhood, maybe I am the one with the confused flight plan. If God has set me back in this season, it must for a reason. Maybe I need to spend more time actually "being" where I am at, instead of treating it like a layover on the way to somewhere more exciting.

"For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans to give you a hope and a future, plans to prosper you and not to harm you...You will seek Me and find me when you seek Me with all of your heart." Jeremiah 29:11, 13

Dear Lord, Please let it be enough for me to know that there is a plan for me, without needing to approve the itinerary first. Help me to put one foot in front of the other every day, all day, in a way that pleases You. In Jesus Name, Amen
