I have this terrible tendency of jumping ship to a new opportunity the moment a job makes me uncomfortable or when I simply find myself bored. And the same goes for my residence; I welcome the end of a lease as an excuse to venture on to a new locale and spend months setting up shop in a new space. New, new, new. It's shiny, it's pretty, it's greener over there in that grass.
So for now, I stay. The Lord has asked my to be still, and I will joyfully obey. And I've got to tell you, everything seems sweeter when taking those (sometimes challenging) steps to live in obedience. Even my shoddy apartment building that drips water in the walls when my upstairs neighbor flushes the toilet. I so thankful for that little hot mess.
P.S. Thank you to all my prayer warriors! It is truly an honor to know that my dear friends and sisters have approached our God on my behalf, and you've blessed me so much in doing so. He is so faithful, and I thank y'all for your love.
