I cried the night before I moved into my dorm.
It’s a chapter of my life that I’ve been waiting on for what seems like an eternity, but I still cried. I was still scared and I was still nervous. I dreaded seeing my family get in the car and drive away. I hated the goodbyes. I was sad and anxious and terrified.
And that’s okay because change is hard and messy and confusing. But it’s also unavoidable. I would even dare to say it’s necessary.
Maybe you should know something about me:
I have a bad habit of selling myself short. I convince myself I’m not talented enough or brave enough or smart enough to accomplish A,B, or C. I fear my inadequacies.
Wow that hurts to admit. Sharing your heart on the internet isn’t always the easiest thing to do.
But let me remind us both of something crucial:
Only one person has ever walked this earth and not made a single mistake and he did it so we didn’t have to. The grace in that truth completely covers me when I’m going through the struggle that so often comes with change.
And friend if you’re feeling any of the things I’ve been feeling the last few days, I pray it covers you too. 💛
“He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.”
