In the past 3 days I have flown over 17 hours, passed through over 6 different time zones, and suffered from a severe case of jet lag. In the past 3 days I have given up caffeine (we'll see how long that lasts!), ran a 5k through the Philippines, and gotten an hour long massage for 4 dollars! My life is so random, and so crazy... and yet I absolutely love it!
Some days I can't believe that in the past 7 months I have lived on 4 different continents and been in 12 different countries. Seriously, who does that? What is even harder to believe is that now I can't imagine life any other way. I can't imagine life without community. I can't imagine life without poverty. I can't imagine life without my my beautiful, spirit filled, crazy, prophetic family of 64 people known as the "P-SQUAD".
My life has changed so drastically in the past 7 months. I think, speak, and process so differently. The baby I was 7 months ago has grown up. My heart yearns for things I never thought it would before. My life will absolutely never be the same, and for that I am so thankful.
This journey for me hasn't ever really been about finding Jesus. I found Him a long time ago. This journey instead has been about learning to surrender, to listen, to speak, to trust, and to love in a way that I never knew was possible. This journey has been about being exposed to and equipped for whatever God has in store for me after this race comes to an end. I don't have a clue what the final 4 months will look like (seriously, only 4 months left?!), but I know that my God is a God of great adventure... so I can only imagine what he has in store!
Here's to a new month, a new country, a new continent, and a new season.
"It's gonna be wild, it's gonna be great, it's gonna be full of Me!"
