Hoping and Praying
Watching the trailers to movies is weird for me right now. You know how they wait until the end of the preview to tell you when the movie comes out….well I’m hoping I’m not here for most of those so it’s weird. I was just at a movie and saw a few previews that made me want to watch the movie, but then I saw when it was coming out and I began hoping that I wouldn’t be here then.
I am hoping to leave the only country I have ever known as a resident to move to another continent, that I have only visited a few times, this April. That’s crazy and amazing and all kinds of ridiculous at the same time. What’s strange though is I keep forgetting until something or someone reminds me.
Just the other day my brother, his wife, my mom and step-dad were all talking about their plans for this summer. I started to think about my plans for this summer and I remembered I have no idea what I will be doing. That’s ok with me, I don’t mind not knowing my plans for my first few months in Germany, but it’s weird to think I will be setting up my own apartment, adventuring around a country where English is the second language, and trying to adjust to all things German!
To be quite honest I’m scared, I’m excited, I’m nervous and I’m hopeful.
I’m scared of leaving family and going that far away and missing things that happen here.
I’m excited to see how God uses the skills and talents that He has given me.
I’m nervous that I will have no idea what I’m doing!
I’m hopeful that I can be in Germany just after Easter.
Please pray for me and for all of my friends who are currently raising financial support so that are nerves and thoughts are calmed and that we can find that support we need to start doing what God has called us to do.
