Why does that sound so dramatic and terrifying?
Is it because of change? Because it means leaving something behind? Stepping into the unknown?
Family. Friends. Church. Community. Money. Space. Support. Independence. Distance….. So many words are running through my head, so many thoughts — like flies in a mason jar, flying fast and erratic, hitting the sides over and over again, finding no visible outlet.
Emotions are all I feel, all I see. I can barely label them, let alone control them.
The world is at our feet. We are young, and we have just the two of us; we can go and do what we please. We can make our own choices and decisions based on our circumstances and the potential outcomes of those decisions.
But, what do we do?
When do we do it? How do we do it? How long do we do it?
I’m so confused. I keep asking the Lord for direction, but He’s funny that way; I’ve found that He likes to let us pick, and follow us wherever we go, telling us that there is not ONE right answer, but one right reaction: Stay close to Me. Keep Me involved in the process.
Prayer would be G R E A T right now.
