Is there anything more beautifully stunning than receiving a clear answer to prayer? I am not sure.
It is like.... a calm lake. So, just like releasing the birthday balloons to the heavens as an 8 year old after the party, I find a fistful of different "balloons"--the persistent plaguing questions I have so tightly gripped and grappled with for a season...
Ah!.... so now to let go.... why is it so hard? The answer has come so clear and plain. Why the hesitation?
I inhale in and hold my breath....for forever.........eventually I exhale. My fingers open and I let go....... A new smile starts to form... a different smile. One that will sustain me, one that will matter years from now as I reflect back on this poignant moment in my life.
May courage find us both !
