there’s this petition i started two years ago.
this petition to God that pretty much just became this long and continuous conversation. the reason behind it mainly stemmed from a really broken heart…but that’s another story.
yesterday, i was re-reading a few lines, scanning dates, scrolling through the history when i came to july 2, 2009.
i don’t remember writing it, but it was a time when i was caught up in the past, and clearly not wanting to be. so i was praying for my eyes to get knocked back to the front of my face, and to look forward.
and i wrote this, about my future:
“help me to strive boldly for it, to fight for something even greater. that this time next year i will be in and amongst an adventure that is something i could never have imagined.”
that actually happened. and i kinda can’t even believe it.
the thought that God heard those whisperings, a daughter wanting something more than a crumbled past and a predictable future, and gave it back to me in a sack full of maps and pens and passport stamps exactly a year later…
i could never have imagined the adventure.
but He actually did.
