For some time already I sense it's time to move on, to leave old things behind and pioneer new territory. A prophetic friend just send me this word through skype: "This is a major transition season for you and God will increasingly make you uncomfortable in what you have been in. I sense God is shaking you out of where you are geographically and there will be a new emphasis." Interesting.
Earlier today I printed some material related to the 400-year celebration of the discovery of Australia by the Dutch navigators, pushing for new territory. As I write this I watch the 'Red Details' calendar in front of me that Kerstin gave me for my birthday. January shows a lighthouse with a quotation by French author Andre Gide:
One does not discover new continents without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.
And this can be quite scary...
