There are times when you find yourself entering into a particular project or phase of life and you don't quite understand all that it will demand from you. But because of the way things work, you enter it anyways.
And so there you live, inside this project or particular phase of life.
The risk here is that you can go through the whole project, the whole phase and not take ownership of it. Live in fear, discomfort, and a sense of insecurity of what you're doing and where you are going.
Today, I had a moment of clarity. I decided that however bewildering this next year of my life in Germany might, however much I might get pushed out of my comfort zone, I choose to embrace it all.
Last week, I arrived in Germany.
Today, I chose to be fully present in Germany.
I don't quite understand all that is going to happen, but this is my choice. May God judge.
