Uncaged

This morning I woke up to a sobering thought. Today is the first time since I was 14 years old that I haven’t had a job of some kind. That’s a loooong time. That’s a lot of jobs and a lot of water under the bridge. I didn’t stay in that thought too long. I got up and began the process of looking for what’s “next”.

Uncaged.

It wasn’t long ago that I wrote about losing my soul. Today my soul is free to choose where it will be alive and honoring its Creator. How cool is that? The amount of ideas running through my mind at the moment is crazy. I’m taking inventory, praying, googling, praying, making phone calls and, well, praying. This is the most exciting thing I have done in months! Thanks to Zac Brown Band, I’ve even got a theme song now….

I wanna swim in the sunshine.
Every day find a way to face my fears.
I wanna get in the wind

Man I love that. It got me all kinds of pumped up. “I wanna get in the wind”. Reminds me of Mark Driscoll comparing the launch of Mars Hill Church to “a kite in the middle of a hurricane”. I feel like I’ve been given a chance. I’ve been blessed with an opportunity to hit “reset” and let the ideas fly. No idea what all that means (did I really talk to a friend about writing a book today?), but I know I’m as amp’d as I have been in a long, long time. It feels awesome to be…

Uncaged!

  1. Aaron – enjoy your new freedom. It will be challenging at times but getting that blank slate my be the most cathartic thing for you. Kind of neat to start dreaming without boundaries again (since you were a kid probably)

    I'll look forward to connecting with you soon.

    1. You are right. I haven't had this freedom in a long, long time. Scary but fun all at the same time. No doubt on getting together. I'll reach out to you next week.
