Soon, what I have worked for and at for 21 years will be over. Its nudging I have ignored, denied and just plain reasoned away for a good while. Until, I could no longer. Still and yet, its persistence doesn’t make the decision to leave an easy one.
I wonder if I am too old to seek something new. Is it too late to cradle a dream in my arms that I have long hidden in my heart? If I consider things in terms of what seems “reasonable” by this world, it just doesn’t seem to be the right time.
Yet, I hear Him whisper, “yes, now.” So, I follow. I say “goodbye” to that which has been so kind and “hello” to things I have only dreamt about.
In the midst of it all, I seek to remember…
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” -Lamentations 3:24
