I have not given an official announcment so here it is, I am moving. While running out of things to do to help the movers I thought “what an appropriate time to blog while I kill time”. The movers are literally boxing up my things while I sit here typing. I can hear the sound of crumpled paper as they wrap my belonging in the living room. I also here the footsteps upstairs packing up my bedroom. Life has been a bit of a blur this summer. I take every day one day at a time, sometimes hour by hour. Don’t get me wrong I do not want anyone feeling sorry for me, there are much larger matters in this life than moving but this change has not come without it’s trials.
The company I work for, South Moon Under, is relocating their corporate office to Annapolis MD. We are currently located in Berlin MD. It’s only a 2 hour hop across the bay bridge. The move is not drastic and I think the change is exciting. However, this has been a bit of a scary plunge. This change comes with risk. But you know what? Staying here comfortably has it’s risks too.
There has been what seems to be a very concentrated amount of tragedy going on in our world lately. That has kept my perspective grounded when I want to pout about a sudden move. Yes I have to uproot quickly and it has been physically, mentally, and financially trying but at the end of the day what is the worst outcome? That I do not like Annapolis? That I do not like my job anymore? Some things in life are not fixable, fortunately for me this move at worst is still easily fixable.
When I start feeling sorry for myself I try to remember to pray about it. To give my cares to God and then I see just how small my concerns are. Don’t get me wrong I am so far from perfect at it. Sometimes my pride gets in the way and I decide I want to stew in a bad attitude instead. But when my mind is in the right place I often think of these verses “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life.” Matthew 6:26-28. Those words hit my like a ton of bricks sometimes. God is good, He cares for me. I stand reassured in His promises and His love for me.
I will put an end to this rambling but I wanted to share my thoughts and what is going on in my life currently. If you have a moment when you just feel out of control of your life know that it is because you are not in control. But rest assured in the fact that God will care for you if you allow Him to.
