Today marks 2 months since I packed up my small stash of belongings in a trailer, hit the road, and booked it across the country for no apparent reason. People must think I am nuts…I mean, just absolutely bonkers! Who leaves their family, friends, job, and the beautiful weather of Los Angeles in order to park it in a city I know virtually nothing about? Sometimes I sit around scratching my head just as much as everyone else must be. Going alone to a place I’ve never been, no job lined up, no friends or family waiting for me; yup, crazy is the only logical explanation. I only give it a good minute or two of thought until a huge smile busts out across my face and I can’t keep from giggling.
“God, you must be doing something beyond my wildest dreams here because I have no idea what I’m doing!” And there, right in that moment is what gave me complete peace while standing on the edge of cliff ready to take a life-changing leap of faith. Disobedience to Him was far scarier to me than living in my comfort zone forever.
The feeling had been billowing up within me for a couple of months before I could no longer deny what He was trying to tell me. Tennessee seemed a slightly random place for me to venture off to, but then again maybe not. All the things that had led up to that point were actually right on track looking back. Discerning what The Lord was telling me was the easy part as I spent much time in prayer over it. Trying to get others to understand would be the challenge. It still is. Seems the questions never cease, but I’m okay with that. Most people won’t get it because this journey is not for them.
All I know is that at this point in my life when I look towards the future I see a completely blank slate. Knowing that my life is in the Creators hands and having Him do what He wills with it makes me smile. In the past He has lifted me to great heights, and held me tight amid some tough lows. Without a doubt I trust He has been with me every step of the way. Mind blowing things have already happened by 26; I can’t even begin to fathom what might be ahead. Whatever it is, I’m all in for this adventure!
