faith, fear, freedom…

I admit I still have an enormous amount of anxiety associated with moving out of my miserable job position. There was comfort in the misery. It may have been Egypt, but at least there is tangible provision (I say this loosely and halfheartedly, it was more like a lot of sticks and very little carrot). Faith check there is a provision on the other side as well. I am reminded of the Psalmist words, “I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.”

I have not held a paid job position since January 25, 2013; and while I have an overwhelming sense of peace, two questions remain. What have I done? What will I do? First, I have to make a commitment to live by faith, not in fear. I want my life to reflect a life that says Jesus is coming back today! Second, I have to enjoy this God-given freedom to do something that has been on the back burner for too many years, seminary.
