Before Our Eyes


Nerves are getting the best of me

I’m nervous. Plain and simple, I am just plain nervous. I am nervous about moving… I mean what 24 year old newlyweds really want to move in with the parents. But, we are excited to be doing so. We know that it is a necessary step and we know that I don’t need to work full time while in school, so this is our best option, but I am still nervous. I am also nervous to be going back to school… it has been awhile. In all this nervousness, I have to look up. I have to realize that we are in God’s hands and he will take care of us. I have to know and put all my faith in our Lord in order to be okay for this jump! My most favorite, life altering quote is from a book called Eat, Pray, Love. The author, Elizabeth Gilbert writes “If faith were rational, it wouldn’t be-by definition-faith. Faith is belief in what you cannot see or prove or touch. Faith is walking face-first and full-speed into the dark. If we truly knew all the answers in advance as to the meaning of life and the nature of God and the destiny of our souls, our belief would not be a leap of faith and it would not be a leap a courageous act of humanity; it would just be… a prudent insurance policy.” I have faith, but I don’t know that I completely new what that meant until I read this statement. With that simple statement taken out of an entire book, I am reminded that I can trust God with everything I do… including moving in with my mama and quitting everything I know to begin on a whole new journey in life.
