Do you ever find that when you withdraw, and start re-aligning your eyes and focusing on the Light, you can begin to see so clearly again?

As I've begun to withdraw, I've been amazed, quietly thankful at how often God has ushered things into my path that speak directly into this situation that I face...that raw brokenness, and the feeling of being utterly undone.

"my yoke is easy, my burden light"

I know how cliched those words are. How misinterpreted words like that can be...and yet. They penetrate, causing me to question - is this the Truth? If so, what does that Truth look like right here, right now?

I'm reminded over and over about how gently he leads with his never stopping, always and forever love...

So...He speaks. And Braveheart reminds. The goal of this journey is not to teach all there is to know (slaying that feeling of sheer panic and terror when I think of all the information there is), no, the goal is simply to 

inspire a love of learning, 

and teach them how to learn.

The rest of it? It'll come. There is no way humanely possible to learn all there is, or to teach all that there is in this Age of Information overload. But if we keep that at the forefront of each day, we'll get there. I don't know yet what that actually looks like on the ground, on a day to day basis, but ... we'll get there.

repeated day in and day out"

    Don't you get my comments??
    It doesn't look like it....
    Last try!
    I was saying that it is so easy to feel overwhelmed with so much information about everything out there but it's not a race, it's a process, a journey.
    And at the end of the day, what matters is not HOW MUCH they learn but THAT they learn. I know I struggle with that when sometimes it looks like they're barely learning. But they are!!
    So take courage my friend :-)
