Mixed Up, Muddled & In Between

What a funny stage of life we’re just now entering. I feel a little Mixed Up–Where am I going? What am I supposed to be doing again? Who am I connecting with?

I feel pretty Muddled–Wait, what? Who’s idea was this? What’s the plan again?
And definitely, quite In Between.

Part of my heart is in Madison, because I know that’s where we’re going.
Part of my heart is in Broomfield, because that’s where I just left.
Part of my heart is and always will be in Colorado, because it’s my home, my safe place, my family.
Part of my heart is … in San Francisco? 🙂

I feel so In Between.

We just started the newest phase in our life–the In Between Colorado and Wisconsin phase. The In Between Discovery and Ezra phase. The In Between known and unknown phase. The In Between home and adventure phase.

And I’m not quite sure what to do … do I pack? Or do I not? Do I plan? Or do I not? How do I keep doing life here, since parts of my life have not changed, all the while knowing that this life I’m doing is rapidly coming to a close? I just don’t know.

We’re learning how to have more faith than ever. We’re learning how to raise support, when really, we have no idea how. We’re learning to cast a vision to others for something we’ve only just grasped ourselves. We’re learning how to walk this road together. We’re learning how to relax, let go, be still–and know that He is God.

That’s a lesson I’ve supposedly learned many times in the past, and it’s a lesson I’ll continue to learn for the rest of my life. I’m so Mixed Up, Muddled and In Between … and God is right here with me. And so, I know we’ll be okay.
