Standing In The Middle Of Nowhere

I saw this quote on a friend's blog. I could relate on so many levels.

The feeling of being between adventures is a destination itself. It may seem like a braver traveler wouldn’t have to wait in the stillness of the empty crossroads, but it takes a different kind of boldness to skip the comfort of an arbitrary destination and enter the quiet land of uncertainty, as if you wanted to send yourself a postcard from there. It’s a daunting passage along the heroes’ journey that some people never dare enter. But if you can hang at that empty crossroads and bear the boredom, that’s when magic roads appear out of nowhere. But to get on those roads, you have to be willing to stand in the middle of nowhere for a while.”

(David Wilcox)

I don't know what God is doing or what He wants to do in so many areas of our life.

I do know He has given us instructions for now to "wait, listen, rest and make our family the priority."

That is where I am, "the quiet land of uncertainty."
