3 years ago on this date, I boarded a one-way flight back to New York. When I stared out this window with teary eyes overlooking Chicago, I had no idea what God had in store for me. I just knew He was leading me home. I thought it was just to finish school but I see now it was for so much more. I'm so grateful for the amazing, supportive parents I've been blessed with, the wonderful church family The Lord called me to be a part of, and the incredible ways God has revealed Himself to me these past 3 years. I still don't know exactly what God has in store but I don't know I ever will fully. That's the journey of faith when we serve Jesus. Where He leads, we're to follow. And in the end, it will always be worth it. He knows exactly what He is doing and He is always good. Even with all the ups and downs and unexpected bumps in the road (and there's been many - even recently - which is why there's been some temporary silence on the blog), I wouldn't trade any of it. Nothing compares to the joy and peace that comes from Christ alone. I'll be back here soon to write... I haven't forgotten... ;) pressing on toward the goal, Jenn
"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
