The question I get a lot these days is “what’s next” for me?
The truth is, I have no idea.
I do know that I am trying hard to not make too many life-changing decisions right now. I don’t think I am in a place to make particularly good long-term decisions. So I am taking some advice from Steve Sample, and not making any decisions today that I can put off until tomorrow. Because tomorrow I will have more information to work with, a better sense of what God is doing in me, and therefore a better sense for what God wants to do with and through me.
One of the things I have been learning is how to be a non-professional follower of Jesus Christ.
Now don’t misinterpret what I am saying… I loved following Jesus while in full-time ministry and, to be honest, I think there is no greater privilege in the world. But now I have to learn to follow Jesus differently. I need to learn new habits and patterns and make new committments. Not bad, just different.
So what are my next steps? (because you know, we all have a next step!)
I am waiting on God, surrendered to Him. I am doing some research and thinking into what options I have and what God might be calling me to do. That is about as far as I’ve gotten… prayers appreciated.
