“We observed His glory, the glory as the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” ‭‭John‬ ‭1:14‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Hello, RadiantOne, 

We live in a civilization where only “big honkin’ success” is acknowledged. We don’t even notice the baby steps, breakthroughs, or earnest “I tried” but slipped, tripped and fell flat on my face. 

Yet it takes shocking bravery to be at mid-expedition. Yes, it is brave just to be there. The middle is where it’s at, babe. 

Maybe you’re in transition. Perhaps you are in study-mode, growing a new business, writing lesson plans, in recovery, or getting your feet back under you from a necessary divorce. 

These are the times when sharks circle your john-boat, any which way you step-there’s manure, your shoes are on the other side of a blistering-hot asphalt lot, hail beats down, the moon stays full forever, your boss changes the game plan, your mom calls delivering “the lecture”, and your anxiety level explodes for fear that you may age in misery with dreams that never got their chance.  

Yep, these are the moments that need a party.  

These are the times we need a round of applause and streamers and a frozen yogurt cone and spectators to our radiance. These are the times we must allow ourselves to love and be loved through the sweat and exhaustion. These are the times when we must cheer for what we’re made of. . . our mettle … you know the source of that, right? What makes us stand is the Power of God Almighty who continues to give us strength to move. This is the time that we celebrate His Presence and the stubbornness He delivers in us to keep upright and keep us lurching and wobbling forward.  

Lately, I’m all about perspective. In His strength, you and I have total control over it. Please give yourself the benefit of true perspective. Do not allow the enemy to plant seeds of self-rejection for “not being there yet.”

The One that designed your “there” is utterly, entirely, and completely for you. Take in His glory here. 

You are exactly where you are supposed to be to learn to rely on God Most High for the outcome. Allow Him to move you forward again. Lean in to Glory. 

 Wake up. Lean in. Go.
