I have been thinking a lot about what is next for me, for this blog, for my dreams and for my calling. I have been pretty quiet on my blog since October. Writing has been fleeting and difficult to hold onto over the last few months and I would even say for the last few years. The last blog I posted wasn’t even out of my own desire but something I wrote for graduate school. Which by the way, you should all know. I added something new to my resume: Graduate School Drop-out. A year ago this time, I had just accepted an offer to attend a pretty great Divinity School. A year later, I am doing exactly what I believe I should be doing right now and it is not school
For some it is a surprise and you did not know that I stepped away from seminary, so if you are curious and intrigued, feel free to email me about it. But this post today isn’t about the intense experience of coming to terms with “quitting” something. No, instead today I want to give a life update, which I rarely offer on this site.
I dream a lot, I don’t normally feel alive if I am not dreaming. I love to hear about other people’s passions and callings. I love to sit across from someone over coffee and watch as an infectious smile goes from their face to my own.
It has been quite the journey since I graduated college. While some may think it was only three short years, in these (not even) three years I have lived in four different states, worked four different jobs, ran a company, worked full-time at a church, started Grad school and moved back to working. A lot of life has been lived, an overwhelming amount of life has been lived. But after three of the most arduous and painful years of my life, I am beyond excited to share with all my readers that I am, yet again, overcome by a smile that just won’t let up.
Now let me clarify, I am not in some blissful state of perpetual happiness or gratification, but rather I am in the start of something new. Something scary new, and if you know me you’d know that scary risks are my thing and get me pretty amped up.
This is the realest my dreams have ever felt in my life. This is the most I have believed in a calling on my life since I first thought one might exist for me.
Now today isn’t the day I get to share with you all the entirety of my news. But know that I am alive and well and hoping to bring you into the fold much sooner than later.
God never ceases to be good. And not because my dreams are coming to life, but because His love is unending, His thirst for justice is world-changing and His blessing to walk through life with us is like nothing else.
