It’s really happening…

Tonight it hit me that I’m really leaving. Soon. It’s overwhelming, but in a good way. I feel overwhelmed by God’s grace and goodness, by a sense of calling and peace and this being right. I’m confident I’m going into this with him. I am humbled and deeply thankful to and for God, for his plans and purposes. I guess I can’t quite believe I’ve actually reached this point of walking away from my life as it has been and walking into the new things God has called me to. It’s been a long time coming, months and years of frustration and not knowing, praying and longing for something more, dreaming and hoping and anticipating and expecting. And now something is being fulfilled, made reality. I’m not going to stop praying and longing and dreaming and expecting. There’s always more. But I’m amazed by what’s happening in my life right now and I’m awed by how God’s plans are so much better than what I thought I wanted from life. I’m amazed by him, just amazed.

Through your faithful prayers and the generous response of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, everything he wants to do in and through me will be done. I can hardly wait to continue on my course. Philippians 1:19
