A Late Lent

Apr 14

Lent always sneaks up on me and takes me by surprise.

This past Lenten season, however, was a time of growth and challenge, but more accidental than on purpose.

I’ve been working through a course called “How to Hear God’s Voice” and I’ve been practicing and experimenting with that in addition to working through the things I’m learning in house church and in my personal ministry time with Bill Axtell (who has been such a gift to us!)  I have the sense that while I’m growing and being mightily stretched through all of this, that God is wanting to speak to me more personally now.  He wants me to “get” what it is He has for me, but I am just not quiet enough to hear Him.

Yesterday afternoon I had an hour where no one needed or wanted me, and I sat down to hear what God wanted to say.

He’s invited me to do a 40 day span of quiet with Him, as well as a partial fast.  Interesting.  I’m not really sure what this is going to look like, but it does mean that my computer will be off for those 40 days (yikes!) and that I’ll be spending more time with Him in prayer and fellowship.

So this blog will also be shut down during that time.  My friend called it a “blogatical” (like a sabatical, only just for blogging!)

From now until May 25th I will not be answering e-mail, Facebooking, Twittering, or playing on the computer.  If you need to get ahold of me you’ll have to call me.  Anyone who needs to do that will already have my number or know how to get it, so I won’t be posting it here.

And in 40 days?  Who knows.  I feel like I’m at the start of an adventure.  Can’t wait to see where it leads.  I am wide open to anything God wants me to do, and excited to hear what that might be.

I wish all of you God’s blessing, and look forward to possibly sharing what God does for me over the next 40 days.
