A new position opened recently, and my husband was uber qualified to fill it.
But it was out of state and involved a lot of travel. I wearied of weighing all the options of what life could look like should he apply and be accepted. Would I move with him? Or would I stay here?
I fretted over how this would affect our extended family, how it would affect our marriage. But in the end, I didn’t want to be the one to hold him back. I simply had to let it all go, support his decision to apply, and wait for the next step.
You know, let God have it.
We talked about that the other morning over oatmeal, about the mixture of disappointment and relief because a decision had been made. Our thoughts trailed here and there like toast crumbs across the counter, and ended in a conversation about our friend Paul.

This week The High Calling is talking about what holds us back in our work. I’m sharing the rest of this story over there today. I’d love to see you join the conversation.
