A New Comfortable

We all like to be comfortable. We want to be in a place of life where we know what is coming and what to expect. At least I do. So when I moved to China over two years ago, I was definitely getting way out of my comfort zone. I was moving to a foreign country, where I knew no one, a new city, new children, new work, new.... everything. And it was terrifying. But.... God was there and He got me through. We took one day at a time as I adjusted and adapted to my new life here in China.

Now as I prepare to return to the US, I'm going through the process of leaving my new comfort zone. That's right, after living here over two years, China has become comfortable. Not that it doesn't have it's challenges and struggles but that's everywhere, right?

As I get ready to leave next month, it's scary. I'm stepping out in faith which this time, is leaving China. I don't know where I'll be moving too and what job I will have, just to name a few of my unknowns. Yes, it's scary but I also have a family who love me and will help me through this new transition and a God who goes before me.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."
Proverbs 3:5-6


  1. I completely understand that. I was surprised to realize how "comfortable" something that was so outside of my comfort zone originally could be. I'm praying for you!

    1. I'm glad you understand, Annie! Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers for this huge upcoming transition!
