Today marked my fourth full day as a Pennsylvania resident…the fourth day that I have lived here, slept here, hung out with friends here, started a new life here. Yesterday, I finally began hanging things on my walls, which made this feel real for the first time. Today, I went to church at a church I have always admired and appreciated, but left realizing that I will never find a worship team like the one I had in Glendora. It’s the little things that are starting to hit me…the little things that are making this real.
Every day I have to remind myself that I actually live here–it still feels like a dream, since it’s something that I have wanted for so long. And I’m so glad to be here! But, I do miss the people in Glendora…the worship team…the comfort.
And that’s what it all comes down to, I think: comfort. I lived in Azusa/Glendora for seven years, and it became comfortable. I was content in many ways. However, last December I began to pray that God would take that comfort away so that I could grow, so that I could continue to become more like Jesus. I haven’t regretted that prayer for one second. It hasn’t been an easy eight months, but it has been so worthwhile! Look at where the Lord has led me!
I know that the Lord has incredible things in store for me here–and I am ready for the challenges that I will face. Just knowing that His hand clearly led me here is enough to give me the peace to face tomorrow–even though I’m quite uncomfortable right now. 🙂
PS–I have an interview tomorrow morning–please pray that all goes well, and that I get the job, even though it’s just part-time, and it’s not something I’d keep for long. I have bills to pay 🙂
