Home

I am homesick. I don't really know for what though. I think more than anything, its familiarity that I miss. Comfort, having things be so easy. Knowing where things are, knowing who is who, knowing what to expect. I don't miss my physical house so much or the city of Columbia itself. Its the idea of being a kid wrapped in my parents' arms - comfort, security, peace.

For now, I don't have those things here in Nashville. Its lonely and unfamiliar. I'm still using a map to get around town and feel completely out of the loop. I miss my friends, my family, my community. But life is not about being comfortable or safe. The Lord asks me, commands me, to leave my security and know that in Him, I have peace that passes understanding and find comfort that cannot compare.

I will not second guess why I'm here. It is for His glory. I'm not sure what that looks like yet but I am certain He has called me to this city and I will wait to see how this journey plays out.
