As of today it is official I am taking off almost 2 months to travel. I am in between it feels sureal and how am I able to do this/why am I doing this? I know this is exactly what I need. In fact during the internship last year there was a moment where I knew I wanted to travel the world and live with people of different cultures, of different ethnicity’s, with one desire to learn what love is. But I let the dream slip by me. I didn’t actually think I would follow through on this dream. But God has this way of placing dreams in my heart and then by his favor and grace making them happen. This dream re-appeared this month when I was talking with my old roommate from the internship. We began discussing dreams for the future, things we want to do. And then realized we were both in the position to do this. Road trip. Not just for a weekend. But for almost a month. So in less than a month I will be on the road traveling with her traveling the west coast of the united states. Staying with friends, staying with strangers. Visiting places I’ve been before, visiting places I’ve only dreamed of visiting. After a month of traveling I will come back home for two weeks and work. Then, leave again for a week to visit friends IHOP-KC, come back for a week to work and then leave for another week and a half to vacation with the family in Florida. By this time it will be late October. I have no idea what the Lord has in store for me in all this traveling. To be honest I am in a season of hope and excitement, yet I have no idea what is in the next season, guess that shows real faith. Hope in the unseen. My trust lies not in circumstances, not in man. But God.
I am not quite sure how this will shape me as a person, my business, or my life. All I know is I ‘need’ this. On this trip, I wanna learn what love is at a deeper level. I want to take pictures at a whole other level. I want to learn how to love strangers like God loves them. I want to feel the Lords heartbeat for each and every place we go. I want to stop not just for a moment, but a day, and then another day, and another one and breathe. I want to soak this life in. I want to re-discover what life and love is all about.
And so continues my journey…
seems surreal that this is my life at times. My life in the last year has been that which I thought you only dreamed of, but never really happened. I am learning dreams really do come true.
