There’s No Turning Back Now

12 August 2009 146 Comments

DSC_0029Well the day has finally come.  I have officially started my World Race experience.  I am sitting in the Dublin Airport streaming free internet from a bus outside…we’ll see how long this lasts…

I think the reality of leaving has finally begun to sink in.  I am starting to realize that I am not going to see all the people I love for an entire year.  I am beginning to understand that even though this trip is going to be amazing, it is also going to be the hardest thing I am ever going to do.  I don’t think I fully thought through what it meant to leave for a year when I signed up for the World Race.  So much can happen in a year back home, and I don’t want to be away from it.  However, I believe that this is the call of God for my life, so I am thankful that I have that fact to get me through this year.  Even though I have only been gone a day, and even though we haven’t even left the airport yet, I can already see how much God is going to teach me to trust him.  This week has been filled with so many emotions, I am hoping it is the hardest part of the trip – saying goodbye to the ones I love, and knowing that I am leaving my life in America behind.

I can feel myself growing and dying already.  I see myself dying to my flesh and getting rid of all of the comforts that I had convinced myself were necessities.  I can feel something deep inside of me beginning to stir, and I am excited to see what it turns out to me.  I look forward to seeing what God has for me this year, and all of the lives he is going to change through this trip.  I want to thank everyone who has been a part of getting me here – I am so excited and thankful.

If you think about it, any prayers that you could offer for us would be greatly appreciated.  Please pray for me as I continue to come to grips with leaving home, and pray for my loved ones as we adjust to this new time in my life.  And also for my team, as there are 100 other people feeling the same range of emotions I am.  We are very excited, yet still terrified at the same time.

I have a feeling that these first steps, as trembling and timid as they may be, though they are the hardest, they will be the beginning of not only an amazing journey, but also the rest of my life.

Love and peace to you all.
