Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.– Helen Keller
I start a new job in Virginia, tomorrow. As of this moment, I still don’t have a place to live. I can’t keep paying for a hotel and moving expenses, so I have to have a place to live by Friday, or things get a little sticky. The primary challenge in making a move like this is that I was in California (when my dad was in the hospital, passed away, and then again for the funeral) for 18 of the days I could have been working on tying up loose ends at my old job and finding a place to live. It all feels a little impossible at the moment.
There have been numerous times during this process that I’ve felt super uncomfortable with this situation – uncertain how it will all come together. But uncertainty and a lack of obstacles mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. A lack of obstacles in your path do not indicate that you’re on the right path. There are times when that is the case. But it isn’t always. I can say with certainty that in those times when there are challenges that seem insurmountable, getting past them is the best feeling. It may not exactly make the rocky path worth it, but it does make the victory feel a little sweeter.
The best views come after the hardest climb.– Unknown
While I don’t know how it will all come together, I’m trusting that I’ve gotten this far for a reason. I am looking forward to seeing how God will work all this out and how He will give me strength for each moment. If you’re in a similar weird time where you can’t imagine how things will work out, hang in there and keep pressing forward.
