One Week

This past week has been an emotional whirlwind for me, for several different reasons, but mostly just the overwhelming feeling of leaving everything here- my whole life, my comforts, my family, my boyfriend, my friends, my favorite foods, my messy car, my comfy down comforter...I feel like I'm putting myself in an uncomfortable situation on purpose ha who does that? It's like this scary jump that I have to make and the only way I'm going to make it, or make it positive and amazing is with God. Putting myself in that situation where I have nothing else to depend on but Him for comfort. I think that's a huge chunk of what this whole journey is about, is learning to depend on Him more and more...eventually for everything.

Dear Lord,
Prepare my heart and soul for whatever you have waiting for me. Keep You in the front of my mind. Reveal yourself to me in all Your glory. I am your handmaiden and your servant. You are all I want. Fill me up.

I ask You, precious Lord, to send Your blessings to all my family and dear friends who have made this possible. The fruit of their support will surely be some wonderful fruit :)

Thank you for my wonderful parents. I am truly blessed. Be present in their hearts always.

Erin, you are demonstrating enormous courage and a hugh leap of faith. It is your willingness and open heart that will allow GOD to work in your life. It's amazing how simple this is but how extremely HARD for most of us to do! It's hard to not want to be in control and can feel really scary to be in complete submission to GOD. But why? Isn't GOD our creator who knows every hair on our head and loves us unconditionally with "everlasting love"? I support you in this giant step forward towards trusting God and I know He has an extraordinary plan for your life. I am excited to watch your journey unfold as you grow closer to the heart of Jesus. Erin, I love you and will continue to uphold you in prayer everyday! Love, Aunt June xoxo
