The word anticipation is one that I have become very familiar with these past few months. Since graduating, I have struggled to find where God is leading me. He has given me a passion for so many different things, that it was hard to know which direction my life would take. Along the way, there have been many glimpses as to what the future could hold. To say the anticipation has been driving me crazy would be an understatement.
Well Friday I received some of the answers that I have been sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for. And now I am so ecstatic that it is taking everything in me not to shout it from the rooftops (I realize that's super cliche, but it's so true).
Anyone who knows me well knows that Europe has stolen my heart. One semester abroad and I have never been the same. But I didn't just fall in love with the history, culture, or straight-up gorgeous architecture. My heart burns for the people too. Getting to hear and become part of stories that are so vastly different from my own, yet so similar, is easily one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.
Which brings me to today. I am so incredibly excited to share that this next year I am going to be serving as an intern with CRU in Lund, Sweden! I am going to have the opportunity to share the most beautiful love story humanity will ever know with students who so desperately need to hear it.
If you would have asked me four years ago what I would be doing after college, this would have exceeded the realm of my imagination. But that is the beauty of doing life with Christ. He takes you where you are, no matter how broken you may be, and uses you in ways you never dreamed possible.
I know this journey is not going to be easy. In fact, the enormity of it takes my breath away. But I feel so incredibly blessed that my Savior has called on me to go; to step out and take this crazy leap of faith. I am equal parts exhilarated and petrified when I think about all the possibilities this next year could hold. All I know for certain is that the coming months will require me to cling to God more tightly than ever before. But I cannot wait to live this adventure.
