leaving is hard. even when you know that you’re going to do exactly what you’re meant to do, it’s still hard. We are in such a season of uprooting. Our days are filled with packing, making obscene amounts of lists, support raising & now saying goodbyes. I’ve already said three goodbyes and know that number will only continue to grow.
And if I’m being honest, this season of uprooting has left me an emotional wreck half the time. Which is pretty new for this girl that has often been described as “emotionless”, “heartless”, “the tin man”, etc. Some days are good and some are just so hard. Hard to think about big events we’ll be missing. Weddings. A very special birth. And hard to think that life will go on without us, but it will. And our lives will go on in India.
And in the midst of uprooting and what a hard season it is, The Lord is sovereign and so so good. We are continually blown away at His hands in our planning to move to India. From support raising (we only have $250 a month left to raise!) to knowing we have furniture ready for us in India, to having people helping with logistics and housing to having people her pouring into us to help equip us for life on the field. He is so good and it is very apparent that we are exactly where we are supposed to be.
And even on the hard days, we continue to rest in the truth and the knowledge that The Lord is our shepherd, we shall not want, he makes us lie down in green pastures, he leads us by still waters, He restores our souls, and He leads us in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. And that knowledge makes this season of uprooting, so much easier.
