I've been having those, "whoa. I live in Nashville" moments pretty frequently in the last few days. I remember day dreaming about moving back out here since I was 10 years old. the Lord placed a promise in my heart at that time & told me that I would be living in Nashville again someday. (I say again bc I lived here for 9 years growing up & then moved to Nevada when I was 10) at that time I kept having dreams about living here, meeting different people, singing on stages, traveling the world, laying hands on people & praying for them all while God was in the center. GUYS. the Lord gives us all SO many promises & desires. He places them in our hearts for a reason. It's not just you who has those dreams + desires. He has those same dreams & desires for you too. I remember last April the Lord very clearly told me, "drop your fear, pack up your suitcase, buy a one way ticket & just go." & here we are. almost ONE YEAR later I'm living in Nashville, Tennessee.
I cannot begin to express how hard it was to fly out here without a set plan. jobless, car-less, & then soon enough house-less. BUT wowww. He sure did provide. He provided a car for me to use + a place to stay for the first 3 months & then after, provided me with amazing friends who let me sleep on their floors/couches & drove me around until I got my car shipped out here & found a place to live. my faith + trust was SO tested. all I know is that I wouldn't change this whole experience for the world. It was so hard but so good. I got even closer to Jesus' heart & have learned so so much. I've gained the most amazing friends/family who I only thought existed in the movies. BUT THEY DON'T. THEY EXIST GUYS!!! I still have my dreams (a lot of dreams) but my main dream is Jesus. I just want Him. & the best thing about just wanting Jesus is the fact that everything else will come with Him. He wants the best of the best for you. receive His love & keep your eyes on His eyes & every desire of your heart, every dream + passion will come with Him. that's just who He is. He is GOOD.
ps. my room finally feels like a room & my home finally feels like a home. If you need me I'll be in here reading + listening to music. ♡
