Today is my last Monday before I move out of Chapel Hill and that’s making me feel all sorts of stuff. I’m sad to be leaving the place I’ve called home for seven years, the place I grew up, the place I started my business, the place I met my husband. I’m scared that I won’t find community, at least not like I have here. I’m confused because I know I’ll only live in Greenville for one year – does it even make sense to build community? I know I need it and I know I want it, but I’m scared it will hurt to make great friends knowing our time together is finite. I’m excited to live somewhere I’m not used to. Excited to visit new places and break out of my bubble of familiarity. I’m excited for the ways God will bring Justin and me closer together as we rely on one another in a new space. I’m excited for the ways the Lord will stretch me and teach me. I’m scared of the ways the Lord will stretch me and teach me. .
This morning as I spent time with my #writethewordjournal from @cultivatewhatmatters and @LaraCasey God reminded me just how much He cares for me. “Save your fear for God, who holds your entire life – body and soul – in his hands.” Matthew 10: 28. .
On this Monday afternoon, I want you to know that God cares. He cares what you’re going through, what you’re struggling with, what you’re hoping for. Take heart, my loves.
