Where My Soul Belongs

Blogging, Jesus

Peace, water

If you are coming from Three Years Down, I want to say “Welcome” from the bottom of my heart, and give you a little more detail about why we are here.  Shortly after arriving in Seattle I drove over to Pikes Place Market and did some sight seeing.  I wanted to get my bearings and walk around outside. I had visited twice while I was in law school and loved the atmosphere.

I wouldn’t say that I was homesick, but I was lonely.  So much of my life turned upside down in a matter of weeks. I needed the time alone to think through what was happening, and what my new life was going to look like.  There is a park next to the Market called the Victor Steinbrueck Park.  I was standing on the deck of this park, overlooking the water and surrounded by so many people soaking in the fickle sun when it came over me.

This is where my soul belongs.

And so it begins. This new journey. This new life. Following God where he has placed my heart and soul each day.  My goal is to stop waiting around until my life starts. It is to trust in him that he has me right where he wants me to be. So with His grace and mercies that renew every morning, that is what I am doing.

Let me tell you, sisters. There is so much more peace this way.

    “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the PEACE of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

    I am so incredibly proud of you. And I’m SO excited for you! Because God has such a glorious life in store for you, and I can’t wait to come along side as your friend and experience it with you. :)
