Anyone who has seen the musical "Wicked" knows where I got the title for this post. I haven't even seen the musical but I adore this song and it's bold statement of going against the norm. Sometimes we all have to defy gravity and the demons in our own worlds and realize we know the truth about ourselves even if others may try to change our minds.
I've recently felt as though Mr. A and I are in a sense defying gravity by leaving his dad's church and praying for God to help us find a home of our own we've endured snide comments, ridicule, hearing that we're not truly believers, and much more. We've struggled with finding the words to tell his parents we've found a new home and still to this day have not had that discussion with them but we're ready to.
We have found our home and we are beyond thrilled with the opportunities that God has presented us with. We've prayed long and hard and studied and asked the hard questions and felt both loved, stretched, and challenged to take our faith to new heights. Pray for us that we find the words and the right timing to speak with Mr. A's parents about our decisions and that they'll understand we only want to be where we can best serve the Lord.
Some of the lyrics from
Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!
It's time to try
I think I'll try
And you can't pull me down!
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.
