Starting over means coming back to an uncomfortable place where I no longer feel in control. It also means I face potential setbacks and failure. My current job search brings these feelings to the surface.
On the other hand, starting over also comes with a promise of new paths and new directions. It means building without the worry of hearing, "That's not how we do things around here." A vision for church planting missional communities raises my pulse and gives me the munchies.
So starting over means I've been both scared and excited at the same time. But I don't think I'd trade this experience for anything else. It's the only way I'm gonna grow!
