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.
