I want to be able to control what people think of me. So I explain. And explain some more. And defend.
Because whether I was wrong – or the critic was wrong – coming face to face with my mistakes is what pushes me closer to Jesus.
So I am glad for the lists, the binder, the checklists, and all of the planning that I have put into this conference. There’s a time to plan intentionally and a time to surrender those plans to God willingly.
And so, if you see me at Allume, I will still be sporting this tote bag. And maybe, just maybe, if I’m really brave – I’ll tell you how even though I learn the lesson of God making “everything beautiful in His time,” I still sin and need it lovingly and graciously taught to me time and time again.
Now it’s just me and God. No more lists. No more plans. No more subscribing and following and blog stalking. Just some mental quiet over the next four weeks to see what HE wants to do.
