Dear Ones!! Jesus is inviting me on a new adventure! "Come away with me", he said with a sparkle in his eyes. "Anywhere" I responded and, hands intertwined, we run barefoot into the wilderness. This past year and a half has been one of the most trying and beautiful seasons with Abba. He has been redefining what wilderness looks like and the beauty of life with him; that wilderness is not bad or scary or univiting but rather exhilerating, liberating, and of the sweetest of intimacys with him. As he stood beside me, our hands clasped, we stared into the forest, an untouched, raw, thriving forest. No foot has rustled the dirt, no hands have oiled the trees. It stood there waiting to be touched by us. He said to me "No matter which way you wander through the forest (my favorite place), you can't go the wrong way if you're with me. We dreamed of all the different paths we could go; running through the trees, crawling through the bushes, tiptoeing through the mosses, adventure; always together...... I could go on and on about how we got to this moment but my "yes" to applying to ministry school at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministries in April was met with an acceptance letter and a fast track pathway to Redding California starting August 2018 through May of 2019! I. AM. STOKED! Jesus is calling me into deeper revelations, healing, refining, and discovery of Himself and learning more of what bringing Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven looks like! I cannot put into words all the things! God is SO GOOD! All that to say, I am leaping into this with hands and heart wide open. Soooooooo I have taken a year leave of absence from work, am packing up my things, and following my Jesus. One of the most stretching parts of giving Jesus my "yes" in this is stepping, well tumbling, into vulnerability of reliance of financial support for the next 10 months. Fully surrendering my control in that area is, well, not my favorite, and way more exposing than I had initially realized but I'm doing it! I am raising funds for tuition and living expenses while I am up in Redding! Asking feels uncomfortable and empowering; the strength in weakness shenanigans is a real thing people. Whoa! I am beyond thankful for every prayer, every encouragement, and every penny. Thank you thank you thank you for partnering with me on this adventure.
