It’s sad when someone you know becomes someone you knew.
It’s been three days since I last wrote… Not much has happened. I’ve been pretty busy working at Hickory Pit, actually. I have just enough time to type out this post before I head back there for the day.
The biggest God moment since the last time I wrote happened yesterday at work. I was serving a table of three men, whom I recognized from Abundant Life in Lee’s Summit, and when I brought out their food, one asked, “How can we pray for you?”
I’ve heard that Christians often ask their servers and cashiers that kind of question when they go out, and I LOVE that, but until yesterday, I had never experienced it.
So then I became a spastic, quick-talking idiot (as I so often do when I get excited), and I filled the three men in about my transition from Mizzou to UCM and I asked them to please pray for that.
Lord knows that transition is so much more than just a change of universities.
I opened this post by saying, “It’s sad when someone you know becomes someone you knew.” That’s a big part of this transition too, and God knows that.
If you’ve been following my challenge, you have an idea of what I’m going through. And it sucks. I don’t know how or why this happened.
Sometimes I wish I could just talk to him, but I’ve realized that I can’t believe anything he says. And my heart just goes out to him because what’s going on inside of him is so much bigger than he and I.
And right now, I really just have to worry about me.
This week I’ve been home for spring break, and I’ve caught up with some really great friends. In those conversations (and even some conversations with customers at work about my future plans), I see that I really have come out on the other side of challenges I’ve faced the past year of my life.
“When I’m overcome by fear, and I hate everything I know. If this waiting lasts forever, I’m afraid I might let go…”
I’m strong now. “Reason to Sing” by All Sons & Daughters is playing as I wrap up this post, and I’d love to share it with you…
