So far I have told two different folks, very important folks (Kathy and Joe), that it is very rare for me to not second-guess major life decisions. Usually there is a second … third … seventeenth … guess. And usually those upteen guesses are made before the decision and then guessed again for the eighteenth, nineteenth … twenty third … time, after the decision.
When it came to going back to Exodus, the Lord started preparing my heart and mind to go back a few months ago. I struggled with the idea a couple of times because SO much in life had changed. I invested a lot into being a self-employed online and social media consultant (some video work on the side) and it was going well.
Yet, I was continually drawn back to Exodus. And As stated before … it just all came together quite naturally. I have no doubt the Lord opened the door for me to return.
Since sitting down at my new/old desk last Wednesday, zero second-guessing. I’ve been at total peace … joy even.
I love being on the Exodus team again. I love being around people during the work-day. I love that I have even been a bit overwhelmed re-discovering all the stuff that hasn’t changed along with plenty that has.
More importantly though, I am incredibly energized and excited for Exodus. This increasing vision and excitement is how the Lord started preparing my heart to return. I would get caught up in my head brainstorming and thinking through a myriad of possible projects all to glorify Him, edify His people and invite the missing to come Home to Him. There is so much more to it that I won’t turn into a huge post here but suffice it to say I find it all very thrilling.
Thrilling. <– I know it’s a big impact word… but I mean it.
So glad to be back. Stay tuned
