Remember.


1 year.
52 weeks.
365 days.
8,766 hours.
525,600 minutes.
31,536,000 seconds.

Oh, the distance a year can bring us.
It makes us older.
Takes away.
Provides new.
Always pushing forward.


This time last year I was preparing to leave the home, community, and life I had built in a city I dearly loved. I was stepping out into the unknown, into a big adventure, into something to which the Lord was calling me. Saying "yes" without a clue, simply trusting in His goodness, provision, and faithfulness.

And here I am, a year later, once again saying "yes". Yes to something completely different than I ever thought my life would hold. Yes to something scary and exciting and kind of overwhelming at times. Yes to His will for my life. Yes to His goodness, provision, and faithfulness. Yes to HIM.

One year later. 365 days.
He has used each one to mold and shape and prepare me for the day I said "yes" to the call He's placed on my life. As I look forward to the next 365 days, it is easy for my heart to fill with anxiety, but then I hear Him remind me of where He's brought me from, and I am reminded of His goodness, provision, faithfulness.

A few years back, a dear friend gave me this advice: "Before you plunge forward, remember. Sit and remember. Remember what brought you to the place you are currently. Remember, so you can carry those things forward with you, for they are just as important as what compels you forward now."

So tonight, I remember.
Tonight I remember.
For with the dawn, comes forward motion.
