A photo from my 3rd year trip to Salzburg, Austria 🙂
Yesterday, I had the great pleasure of receiving a small gift in the mail from a friend in Maryland… Connie Chang.?? She works for New Attitude Conference, a ministry of Josh Harris’ church, Covenant Life Church / Sovereign Grace Ministries.?? She was kind of enough to send me a WorshipGod06 wristband, exacto knife?, prayer card, and a post card with some gracious words written on the back of it:
Anyways, before I post what I’ve been meaning to post for the past few days… I just want to leave a note here, about how/what I’ve been feeling.?? It’s a complicated feeling, a good feeling, but a still a feeling that could very well fade away in an instant.?? I could choose to let this go right now, at this very moment… but to think of what I’d be losing–I pause and realize that this will truly be a God-sized test of patience, the largest I’ve experienced in all my life.?? A friend calls it being at a cross-road, but I just find myself walking??my path, and my friend here walking hers… currently more or less side by side, though not hand in hand… sooner or later, when I leave for seminary, the distance will be much larger between us.?? In a sense I’ve said what I really wanted to say, but the truth is, there’s more… a lot more… something big enough to encompass my entire future.
