I need to go on a vacation to some place like this, or perhaps even in the mountains (I think I am going to be able to set up three days Thanksgiving week for free in Breckenridge for my family). In the past four weeks or so, I have had at least one major conflict or crisis about every other day. I never saw myself as someone who hates conflict, but I think I am starting to. Some of the issues were work related, some from other ministries and relationships, others dealign with different organizations and projects, some with family and friends. The good news has been my survival and overall healthy reaction to most of these situations. Its progress for me and it gives me great hope that insecurity does not have to rule my life even in difficult times. It has also been exhausting and so I have found myself feeling a bit worn out. Trying to rest and exercise more and also spend more time with God. I should have known this was coming, life tends to be feast or famine. I also felt a need to ‘go on the offensive’ spiritually as there have been, are and will continue to be so many great God things happening in, around and through me. I hate to spiritualized things too much, so who knows, maybe this is just too much life happening, maybe it is God’s way of strengthening me and drawing me closer to Him (even though he does not cause these things) or maybe it is spiritual attack. In the end, it does not matter because I trust that even though times are challenging, God is in the midst of it all.

 

I wouldn’t mind a break from it all, however.
