Moving forward in places of uncertainty

Hm. I like the title, but I don't really have much to say beyond that.

Matthew 11:12 "From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force."

There is a way to go "further up, further in" even in the place of transition and shaking.


I want to let go and let God. But at the same time, there is a need to "do something" at the present time. Do we continue to do what we are doing at the moment, or do we stop until we hear what next?

What does it mean when you start sensing the winds of change? How do we learn to adjust our lives to prepare for what's coming without compromising our diligence to be stewards of the present?

I don't think its either/or, because life is seldom that black and white.

I guess its this whole tension of what is here and now vs. what is coming. Its all so abtract...but without something concrete all you end up doing is sounding abstract, wishy-washy. (Which is kind of how I sound right now.)

I'm so anxious to know the "next step" in the middle of a current step...but when I see the "next," I have a hard time finishing the current.

Anyway, thinking out loud. I need to write more, because this is a very lame way to gather my thoughts.
