The ending of one journey

Let’s get some pet peeves of mine out of the way first. When I see someone write, or hear them say, “Many have been asking…” I automatically think, “No one has been asking…” That’s just my thing.

So, “people have been asking…”

We are now at the end of our time at Heights Church. New Year’s Eve will be my last Sunday. It is natural for people to ask me, “What’s next?” (Okay, some people DO ask it. It’s not just some great number. I don’t know that many people.)

I have wanted to finish at Heights Church and I know I have time once the New Year begins to really bear down and pray. When people have asked, I think often of this verse when God calls Abraham:

Genesis 12:1

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

I feel like Abraham if people would ask him, “Where you going?” He shrugs and says, “I don’t know.”

That’s pretty much me.

I will finish my last semester at North Central University teaching some classes. I have some School of Ministry classes I will teach for our District School of Ministry. We will put our house on the market in March. We will pray about what is next. If we don’t have a clear direction by May, we will make a move to Alabama to be near Terri’s dad and our oldest (along with our grandkids). It may be a time God calls us to care for family.

Through all of this time we have felt incredible peace from God. He is leading. All is well. We have great hope for what is ahead for Heights Church. We have great hope for what is ahead for us.

It’s all by faith and we’re learning this new every day.

We end one part of our journey this Sunday. It has been a wonderful part of our journey. The road before is open. We wait with new anticipation. In each part of our journey, our biggest is goal is simple: walk with God.
