Look who’s comin’ round the corner,
it’s almost too dark to see,
but those eyes, burning with fire,
who could mistake them?
Those are lyrics to one of my favorite songs. I like to imagine my breakthroughs coming around the corner, that instead of despair, excitement floods in, an expectancy of God’s faithfulness.
I’ll tell you what, this week in Thailand has been a whirlwind of awesome for me. Leading this team was an answer to prayer. Coming to this particular place. I cried my face off in the airplane on the way here, a mixture of mourning and thanksgiving, just mangled together, running down my face.
Meeting my girls, going to the slums, touring Chiang Mai like a tourist again, shopping the markets, eating all the foods and amazing seaweed-flavored treats… I’ve enjoyed it all!
Setting the tone for worship. Sparking deep conversation. Running logistics. It’s all so good. Prayers are powerful here.
I didn’t realize how much I needed this experience, how timely of a blessing this is for me, and how it’s setting the stage for the next phase of my life. I’m moving to Atlanta, and I still have to figure out housing, but here I go.
I had to ask God to give me a heart for Atlanta, and He’s doing that. He’s letting me tap into His supernatural love, even when everything inside me just wants to be human and move near the ocean. I want the ocean, Jesus. Come on. But… the ocean will come. Maybe next year, yeah?
Either way, I get to see the ocean in August 🙂 pumped for that.
I’ve moved over 30 times in my life. Do that math… I’m 27. I’m practically a wanderer. I yearn to settle in one place (but keep traveling!). It’s coming soon, I hope. God has cool plans 🙂
Breakthrough and answered prayers are just around the corner. A heart to love, eyes to see, ears to hear, new songs to sing, and the wind of the movement of God wherever I am.
I’m saying yes.
