Have you ever been at the place in your life where you sense a crossroad? There is something unmistakable about it. Anxiety is wrapped up in that statement. You know that in the next few days, weeks, or even months, things will drastically change. I think I’m there.
God seems to be leading me to a place where Prayerful Breath Yoga will either grow or fade. When I began, I didn’t really have a master plan. I forced myself to focus only on the next step and let it take me where it would. That seems to have worked for the first year. But now, the path seems to fork. One direction takes the yoga (I hate to call it a business, but it is…) down the safe path of small location, small classes, small influence. The other direction looks like more risk, but exponential growth potential as well. The entrepreneur in me gets really excited. The Jesus follower in me gets really excited. But the introverted part of me gets a bit freaked out. That’s were my yoga really has to kick in. It’s time to lean into the Lord, breathe through the uncomfortable, hold it for a few more breaths and see what opens up.
So, I have started down the path that leads us to an additional studio location in Kalihi. So many of the friends I met at the HIM Conference last March have been asking for classes in town. God has provided a beautiful space at the Prisma Dance studio on North King street. Nicole Lam, the director of the dance school is a beautiful Jesus lover, who not only walks and dances her talk, but has a missionary’s heart. See her story here. I know this is the beginning of a wonderful studio relationship.
So, whenever I find myself asking the Lord, “Where do I go from here?” The answer may change, but the promise remains.
The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14
It really doesn’t matter where He leads. When He beckons me, I will come. I know He is with me. In His presence is fullness of joy. The anxiety slips away. I can rest in the strong, secure arms of Jesus. Let’s do this!
