You never know how or what things are going to happen, so you might as well stop trying to figure it out or predict how anything will turn out.
At twenty-five years old, I still struggle with wanting to know and wanting to have a plan.
One of the biggest things I have learned these past few years is that I’ll never know, and just when I think I’ve got some things figured out, things take a totally different, exciting, and unexpected turn.
I’ve always known I have a heart for people, and that I’m a gifted musician, but I didn’t really know what kind of career I would have or what I would do. And I still really don’t know, but I can hope that the best is yet to come and I’ll just keep moving forward, keep getting better, and keep living open-handed.
I’ll never be perfect, but I can be a good steward of what the Lord has given me now in this moment and in this season.
I can trust Him.
And as long as I know that, as long as I stay in that mindset, I don’t have to worry, I don’t have to fear, I don’t have to doubt (although I always seem to do those things anyway).
But I have less and less of those moments of fear and doubt, and more moments of peace and comfort in knowing that I don’t have to have all the answers.
I’m really excited to be moving to Malibu, to be working with The Malibu Gathering, and to continue to learn and grow.
I don’t know what it means for the music that I’ve been writing and playing. I don’t know what it means for the relationships that I’ve built here in Texas and the family I have here. However, I do know that I’m going where I need to be going, and I’m taking a huge step forward.
The decision hasn’t been easy in some ways, but I have no doubt that it’s the right one.
I’m excited! I’m looking forward to a new season, and a whole new chapter in my life.
I never ever thought that I’d move to California, but I’ve always known that I’m willing to go anywhere and do anything.
So here I am, saying “yes” to something that I could have never thought up or imagined on my own.
Your support is appreciated. Your prayers are coveted.
