Changes, they're hard to cope with.
At least for me. I enjoy comfort.
When God calls me elsewhere I panic at the thought of routine and life going through sudden changes. I find myself anxious until the moment that my new "normal" becomes routine like.
Recently God has called me to a very new season very suddenly compared to my previous experience of changes. I am nervous, nauseous, anxious, and fearful of what this new season will bring, but I am also comforted and peaceful knowing it's where He is calling me to.
I don't know if any of you can relate to this, but if you can holla a little louder in the back so I know I am not alone in this.
I have been in this new town for just a little under six months now. Almost half a year I have been in the place I now call home. That is just crazy to me, and I have struggled so much throughout these six months with various things whether the reasons seem silly or not.
I'm being called outside of my comfort zone, but I am so excited for the growth that I pray will come through trusting in Him during this new season.
This means that I am saying goodbye to now for some and that is hard. One of these "goodbye's" is to Odyssey.
I have been writing for a little over a year and while I have been in a place in life to continue to write I feel that now is my time to say goodbye for now. Odyssey is a great platform to write for and to form relationships with, but unfortunately there is no growth in it for me in it and God is calling me to other things as I am unable to truly connect with the great ladies in my community.
I love writing and I am by no means ceasing to write, but I know that this new season in my life will leave my schedule a little more hectic and being present in my present is so important.
I am looking forward to embracing this new season with hope knowing that the Lord has a plan for everything and while I am so nervous I cannot wait to see what He will do through my life and the ways He will use me.
I pray that as God calls you to new seasons in life that you learn to seek and hear His voice if you haven't and fully trust Him. This is by no means easy, but it is worth it to trust Him over your own desires.
