saying goodbye to good things

It’s happened to me before. More than once.God making it clear it was time to say goodbye to something good. The hardest kind of goodbye. As I mentioned on Instagram last week, a friend I have served alongside in ministry for 10 years announced she would be stepping away from our Wednesday morning bible study.

And today was our last leader meeting together.  🙁

There is much history here, more I will be sharing in another post. But for now, it’s all about the cake.

As strange as it may sound without knowing the whole story, a bit of grief is mixed up in all of this. I spent two days twisted out of shape as I earnestly sought God in prayer over what I was experiencing. I set my alarm every morning to journal. Dug into scripture. And waited.

Then God reminded me of something I said back in 2012, sometimes we need to let go of something good to make way for something better.

It felt like a huge weight had been lifted. I had peace and a clear sense of direction. Even doubly so, after picking up the cake I’d ordered from Wuollet Bakery. After telling them what I wanted inscribed, I had simply asked that “it be decorated with birds & flowers” (my head in full-on SOAR mode).

When I saw the little yellow birds, I couldn’t help but think of my own yellow friend and how God had used it to bring me peace and comfort during a time of upheaval and unrest. [Click HERE for that post.]

Making it all the more clear He is in this thing.
