I believed so strongly in the idea of surrendering to the will of God that I had it branded on my body. My faith has always come first in my life and for that I am thankful, I asked that you journey with me through MMU but little did I know that is not where my path lies. God had bigger plans for me and I had to let go of the plans I had for myself. I fight it with every breath in my body and the more I did the more it hurt. I looked for excuses as to why the decision is hard and I couldn’t move on with it. So now with the unyielding support of friends, family and loved ones I leave MMU and move to New York.
Wow! Just seeing it in writing is daunting but I have to remind myself that God has a bigger plan. I will miss my MMU family and all the good friends I have made in Iowa but it is time for this bird to fly.
I am learning that there is a difference between surrending to his will and settling for what is not your path. I was made for great things and to fulfill a purpose bigger than I know, my entire life has been like that. Cedar Rapids for me means settling for what is safe and comfortable and not what I was meant for. I am a fighter who get what she wants and never settles for less than my best. I go where I’m needed to make this world a better place even if it seems crazy to others. Now it is time to put myself in the places to let those big dreams manifest.
So as I take on this new chapter I have faith, I open myself to adventure, love, laughter, growth spiritually and materially. Above all I hope you continue to journey with me.
