Our Land Between

This is the Land Between—where life is not as it once was, where the future is in question. – Jeff Manion, The Land Between
Are you familiar with the Land Between? Maybe it feels like that’s where you are now—in an uncomfortable time of change and uncertainty.

I’m over at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church today talking about the Land Between and what God can do through these difficult times. Will you join me there?
Whether it’s sudden, or you knew it was coming, life is not as it once was, and the future is in question.
“We’re moving.”
“Honey, I lost my job.”
“Mom, I’m in trouble.”
“I want a divorce.”
“The cancer has spread.”
Life has been interrupted. And, for a brief time, or maybe forever, what was normal is now gone.
The Land Between is unfamiliar, unwelcome, and unpleasant.
It’s a time for growth—a time for God to work in our hearts…

I hope you’ll join me at Gloria Dei to continue reading. Have you experienced a time when you walked through the Land Between? Are you there now?

In Christ,
