So I got a call from Google that said I was going to “lose my site.” But it really made me think about losing sight and why I have not posted in a year.
I’ve spent a year trying to gain some focus on where God wants me to be. Did I run ahead of him? Was I walking in the direction he wanted me to be…had I detoured?
So blogging hit the back burner and I took up some things that were more relational and more intentional. I spent time looking inward and upward.
Setbacks can do that.
They can cause us to look inward and … upward.
I have a friend who recently lost her sight. She knew it was coming and she prepared and trained for what it would be like to not be able to navigate with her eyes. She put her career on hold and was proactive about the inevitable. She did all she could do to equip herself.
She had a warning that she was losing her sight. It didn’t come from google it came in the form of Cancer and it wasn’t a warning that she could fix, but that she should prepare. Now her gaze is permanently fixed upward to where her help comes from.
When we begin to lose sight of where we should be do we get a warning? Is there a gentle tug or a feeling we may be off track or veering out of the center of God’s will? These are the things I will be exploring and sharing with you in the next few posts.
I hope you will tag along as we explore how loss shapes us. How losing can be freeing as well. And what the gentle and not so gentle warnings to us are when we begin to lose sight of what God’s plan for us is.
The most awesome thing is – God never ever Loses sight of us.
