Recently I’ve felt like I was caught up in months and months of being stuck in a drought, stuck in hurts, stuck in everything just being against me, but I feel like the rain is finally coming. The rain is ending the drought.
When the world says you need to fit into this little box, know that that box isn't everything. Fitting into that box won't bring complete fullness. Fitting into that box won't make you any more worthy of love. Fitting into that box won't make you feel complete.
I want to tell a story that God's been writing throughout the last nine months. It's messy, it's beautiful, and it's been challenging. I haven't loved every moment, but every moment has taught me a lesson that nothing else could. I'm grateful for this process and that it's not and won't be over anytime soon. When you ask God to show up, He does. Here's a story that proves that.
I don't even know where to begin. I'm now in my seventh week living here in Germany and it's been an interesting ride thus far. We've done all kinds of crazy things, learned a lot through teaching, but also learned a lot about ourselves through time in the mountains.
Here's the deal, straight up: I leave in seven days and I have cried every day for a week and I don't see the end of that in sight.
I started the week saying God, break my heart for what breaks yours, and I ended the week realizing that's just what He did. It just took me the whole week to realize that's what He was doing.
Last Thursday though, it hit me, and it hit me hard. I'm over here stressing, getting all proud of myself, what God's going to do through me, months and years down the road. But Thursday, the reality hit. He's doing stuff, big things, in and through me, here, now.
You always think of your life, or at least I did, as high school, college, marriage, kids, right? Wellllllll, sometimes God changes that.
77 days and I board a plane back to Ecuador. So many feelings about it. Also- here's how you can support our team.
