taking flight


have you ever felt that urge to take flight not knowing where you were headed? has that look ever come across your face, you know the one right before you spread your wings to fly?

have you ever had the urge to take flight not knowing where you were headed only that you can't stay put where you are any longer?

i am reminded of a strategic song from back in the day of the Jesus movement.

Pioneer, Pioneer
Keep pressing onward
Beyond your fear
Only the Father
Goes before you
To your own frontier
You're a pioneer

Uncharted wilderness
Stretches before you
And you thrive on going
Where no one has gone
Still it gets lonely
When darkness deepens
So sing by the fire
Until the dawn
You travel on
You travel alone
And when you arrive
Nobody knows
But the Father in Heaven
He is glad you can go
For those who come after you
Will need the road

Pioneer, pioneer
Keep pressing onward
You can't stay here
Only the Father
Goes before you
To your own frontier
You're a pioneer

keep pressing onward.. what does that look like for you? is it about leaving the status quo or business as usual? or can it be a stronghold of unbelief, a lie that is time to leave behind?

what is God calling you forward to be? to do? how does it play out in your life?

i would love to have this conversation.

i bless you with the wings needed and necessary to take flight. i bless you with the courage to look forward as you now glean from and make peace with your past, knowing what to leave and what do you take with you.

may you soar, taking new ground as you go- may joy and laughter be your new norm as your capacity to soar increases. i bless you in Jesus' mighty name.
