Hold on to me as we go,
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this way may be stringing us along
Just know you're not alone
Cause I'm going to make this place your home
Settle down, it'll all be clear
don't pay no mind to the demons
they fill you with fear
trouble it might drag you down,
if you get lost you can always be found
just know you're not alone
Cause I'm gonna make this place your home
This song was my theme song when I first moved to Augusta. When people and places were new and strange and I had to use my GPS to find the nearest Chic-fil-A.
Now, four years later, I find myself in a new city yet again. My dream city. Colorado Springs. With both new and familiar faces. And yet again, this song continuously makes it way into my mind. I'm excited and nervous about what this new adventure holds. Yes, I miss the familiarity of Augusta, of my friends and my job. I miss living in a house and with roommates, I miss Boil Weevil cake and Saturday night game nights (I'll let you guess which one I miss the most). And on Sunday mornings I miss walking into a church filled with people I knew and loved.
I miss things being comfortable.
But there's excitement in what this new adventure holds. I'm excited to hang out with old friends and make new ones. I'm thankful to have been given the opportunity to live in the place where I left my heart four years ago. I've found a church and look forward to growing to love them as much as I loved my previous church. There are many joys to be found in the unknowns of this time.
It is for this that I have prayed for the last 5 years and the Lord has answered. So I will continue to walk with Him. I will continue to seek Him and trust that with time, this place will truly begin to feel like home.
... and if not, He is still good.
