It’s been a while since I last posted…mainly because I’ve been absolutely swamped with college classes, work, and wrestling with my past. That’s the thing with the past…if you constantly look back at it, you can’t see what lies ahead, even when what lies ahead is not known or clear. It’s easy to stay focused on the past because it is familiar, there is a sense of security in it, but it’s also easy to overlook all that keeps you bound, keeps you from being free, from becoming who God has called you to be, because there is no guessing with what you know, it doesn’t require the reckless abandonment to God called FAITH. But I’m ready…I’m ready to take the small step of FAITH that seems so excruciatingly hard, but one that will allow me to SOAR. So as I take this step to look ahead, to leave the past in the past in order to have the future God has prepared for me, this song has been on my heart and on repeat in my head.
