Alright, it’s 1:28AM and I’m leaving in a few hours for training in Montana! I don’t know what to think. For some reason, probably because of how much I’d traveled with PULSE, this doesn’t feel like a big deal….and maybe part of that is that I’m really confident that this is what the Lord is leading me towards. Whatever the reason, it is such a strange feeling to stand in my bedroom and have it be totally empty of my things knowing that it will be quite some time until I return to this home…..if ever.
This past Christmas, I got the pleasure of traveling with Moriah Peters again on The Reason. Moriah has become a good friend of mine and she’s always such a bright and joyful person to be around. This time though, she shared with the audiences and us about things that she’s had to face in her life, where she didn’t always have the option to go through tough things or not and that through those times, she was able to BE BRAVE as she leaned on God to bring her through. How I can relate to this. Yes, I have a choice to go to Romania and do this training, but as I’ve seen God open doors and provide and nudge me my entire life, how can I choose not to follow? Is it scary? Yes. Am I uncertain about many, many things? Yes. Is it hard to leave the comfort of what I know here? Yes. Is it even appealing to stay here and not see what God has around the corner? Absolutely not….and in that I’m going to BE BRAVE, step out, take a chance, love people along the way, follow what God is doing and just see. “Watch! I’m about to carry out something new! And now it’s springing up— don’t you recognize it? I’m making a way in the wilderness and paths in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19, ISV) “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” (1 Corinthians 13:12, KJV)
Please pray for me and my friend T as we set out early tomorrow. Pray for safety, the car, our alertness, for good conversation, that God would show us something tomorrow (and that we’d have eyes to see it), and that we make it to our half way point in good time!
