Chapter two

I feel like my life is a book right now. And I'm on Chapter 2.

Chapter one was a loooong chapter. I grew up a lot and learned a lot. I made friends, lost friends, buried friends, made mistakes, learned from those mistakes and enjoyed my innocence. Funny how that chapter was all about me. It was the "defining me" chapter. I found out how to live through Christ...and did everything I could to grow that into something to prepare me for this chapter.

So what does chapter two look like? First off, its a lot more exciting. Secondly, there's no telling whats going to happen. Its been catapulted by the fact that now I'm officially on my own. Sure, I may have been graduated from college for a year and a half now, but this is so different. I'm not living at home, I'm not surrounded by immediate family....I'm a responsible adult. And for the first time in my life, I feel like I know who I am. God has taken this experience of moving out, taking over all financial responsibilities, and being the head of my own household....and He's really helped me focus on the important things of this life.

Its been a crazy couple of weeks. I've gotten to hang out with old friends...ones that will become the very things that help sustain me in this city. I've also gotten to hang out with friends I never really knew before. God has blessed me with some "acquaitances" I never imagined I'd see again. God's been teaching me that He is God, and I am not. Thats something I've always known, but I've been forced to truly experience it. All the mundane things of this life I seemed to have control over are completely and solely from God. Who am I that I should try to play God?

This chapter is about God working through me. I'm in my mission field. Now its my job to share the love and light of Christ with all others....with no stipulations on who towards and how much. I look forward to the rest of this chapter. God is good, all the time.

And after reading Chapter one, I'm so glad for that.
