Are you excited??
People keep asking me if I’m “excited.” And I honestly don’t know how to answer that. This past month has been one of the hardest and most emotional times of my life. Part of me feels like I’m giving up a lot for what some might call “a short trip” to Guatemala. For instance, I’ve had to give up things I never thought I’d give up. I left a job/career path that I absolutely loved. And I don’t know whether or not it will be waiting for me when I return. This was the kind of job I looked forward to every morning . I even dreaded the weekends on occasions because I enjoyed being at work so much! In addition, I will be leaving behind great friends and an amazing community of Christ-loving people. This list could go one. I am extremely blessed in this beautiful island town.
Times and dates are set and return ticket is bought. AndI feel a unique calmness and peace. I have never felt such a peace about anything in my life. God has everything under control. And when I try and figure out the “plan” or do things in my own strength, that’s when the anxiety comes. In order to leave the Florida Keys, God has given me a supernatural peace. I don’t know what’s going to happen in Guatemala or even what will happen when I return; but I do know that my Heavenly Father knows. God knows the plan and that is something I can trust in!
Thank you everyone who is going to come on this journey with me! I covent your prayers and words of encouragement!
