i’ve been 23 for 23 days now. and i don’t feel much different.
nashville is slowly becoming more familiar to me. as is living on my own. i’m understanding the concept of being independent more than ever before. but i’m also realizing this new worldly independence means i must be more spiritually dependent on Jesus than i’ve ever been.
i’m learning to trust that in addition to healing whatever heartache i’ve been dealing with, Jesus will also make sure i can financially handle what’s being thrown my way. He’s providing me with old and new friends, whose lives and walks with God encourage me…and hopefully, they can be encouraged by me (proverbs 27:17).
i’m becoming excited with nashville. and i’m realizing in the lonely times, that’s probably when God is closest to me.
and two months later, this verse is still my comfort:
Isaiah 46:4 — Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
