“Why did Midday Connection end?”
I’ve been asked that question more times than I can begin to count.
When I was told that Midday Connection (a women’s program on Moody Radio) was ending, I was given a few reasons. None of the reasons really satisfied me and I’m sure that none of them would satisfy you either… so, I won’t be sharing the reasons I was given here. I’ve come to peace with the possibility that I may never know all of the factors behind the program ending.
Of course, I believe it was wrong to end the program (How could I be the Senior Producer and Co-host of the program and NOT think that this is a big mistake?? 🙂 ) and it’s been hard to know the best way to let it all go. To stop fighting the decision and just release the program (my baby!) and step into the future. I might not get to see the purpose in this until I’m face to face with God – and I’m sure I won’t even care then. Isn’t is still so hard, though? Sure, I’m thankful for the hope that God can redeem our stuff… but, I’d sure like to see the resolution and reasons now.
It makes me think of “Farewell, Four Waters“, a novel by Kate McCord. When I first read that book, I was struck by the confusion that the main character was thrust into when she suddenly had to leave the mission field – she was doing such good and important work, why in the world would God remove her? I have a hunch that the confusion she felt and I still feel may be a rather common experience (Isaiah 55:8).
So. We move on. Midday Connection has ended (though, there are repeats being broadcast until the end of December 2015) and it won’t be coming back. (sigh)
Have you ever had to release something that you believed in? A dream? A desire? How did you work through that?
