I had an old boss tell me, “You’re going to be great, but you have to be okay with the gray. You’re very black and white with things and things aren’t always black or white, especially when it comes to people.” She was right. I don’t like the gray. The gray is hard. I can’t control the gray. But it’s something I do have to be okay with, because people are gray. Love is gray. Being in the middle is gray. Being in the gray leaves me feeling anxious, powerless, and uneasy. But. I’m learning to be okay in the gray. Jesus was okay with the gray. It’s easy to pick a side. It’s harder to stay in the gray. Picking a side means being exclusive, which is the opposite of what the gospel stands for. The gospel is inclusive. The gospel is for ALL people. Jesus died for all of mankind. So here’s to being okay with the gray. Loving in the gray. Praying in the gray. And letting God have it all.
