Hi there ❤ I hope you’re having a beautiful day! 😊 I feel like I’ve been doing a lot of update-type posts recently, but that’s because there are some new things going on in my life that I’m enjoying talking about! I’ll try not to make these repetitive, although as greater clarity and insight come to me, getting to write about it is definitely helpful.
Today’s topic is on my future -specifically, the next couple of years! You’ll see why in the rest of this post. 💕 I decided to take a leap and go ahead with posting this, even though it feels wild to know what direction the Lord is leading me. 🙂 I’m happy I get to share this with you!
I hope you enjoy!
When I went to church this past Wednesday, I came across a table that displayed various pamphlets. They all had information on the events the church is hosting over the next year or so. There were mission trips, high school-age gatherings, and other things that I briefly read about. The two that made me the happiest were, of course, the Guatemala mission ones, and I read about both while I stood there.
Flash back to a few days earlier, when I went to the church on Sunday for the first time. I learned a lot about what their group does in Guatemala each summer, and at first, I was excited at the thought of going next year with them – I figured I’d have plenty of time to prepare, since that’s about seven months away. However, at the same time I was feeling like that, I also wondered if that would be rushing it. I definitely don’t want to go on mission trips before I’m ready (check out this post for my thoughts on that!). I found out why I was feeling like that on Wednesday evening.
Sometimes in my life, the Lord will slowly, through various circumstances, show me what His plans are for me. It will be a gradual transition from my way of thinking to His way of thinking, which I think is one of the most beautiful things ever.
What He showed me on Wednesday was through a sudden revelation – I instantly knew what His will for me is. It took all of the things that have been on my heart lately and assigned them to certain areas of my life, which immediately gave me perfect peace. Are you ready?
I’m dedicating next year to working part-time, saving money, continuing to go to church, and taking Spanish classes.
Then, 2020 will be for making Guatemala plans!
Now, like I told my mom, this is subject to change. 😂 I don’t think by much, though! I can definitely say with confidence that in my heart, THIS feels right. Getting to know people at this church is a huge blessing to me, and I’m excited about getting my first job (hopefully next year!). All of the little details will come in time. 💜 Following along with what I know now is what the Lord desires of me, and that’s exactly what I’m doing.
SO, with the overall idea of what 2019 will hold for me, I will probably be reducing my blog post schedule to once or twice a week. I won’t mind, though, since I’ll be off working and learning español! I’ll definitely still make time to read the awesome blog posts that are always popping up in my Reader. 😊
Thank you so much for following along! Having a solid plan for what next year will look like, regardless of what will happen when, has already given me such peace. The more I learn Spanish, the more I love it, and the same is true for how much I adore Guatemala and going to this church. Seeing the Lord at work in my life causes me to eagerly await my future. ❤
I hope you have a beautiful day!
