This past weekend, I put a period on a six-year long chapter of my life. It was difficult and I'd struggled with finalizing this decision for the lion-share of the last six months. However, through a non-fantastical experience, God spoke loud enough and clear enough for me to firm the decision to close the book and with much courage, make a change.
It was a difficult, heart-wrenching decision, one that I cried about as I wrote emails explaining my decision to those in authority over me, but I have peace.
I have peace.
"What a moment You have brought me to,
Such a freedom I have found in you,
You're the Healer who makes all things new.
I'm not going back, I'm moving ahead..."
...in You all things are made new."
I move forward with God's direction, His blessing and excitement for what this new season will bring. I'd be dishonest if I didn't tell you I am a bit frightened, for to let go of those which I held so dear, those that love me and those that I love dearly is scary. But obedience is what is requred of me and I put one foot in front of the other ever forward in obedient pursuit of that which He created me to be.
Same journey, new season, ever moving forward.
