Thoughts from Starbucks

     As I sit in the Starbucks somewhere in Kansas City, slaving over my schoolwork, it is continually hitting me that I am going to Scotland. Every time a new wave of shock flows over me, I become so eager to just BE there already, and at the same time, I feel completely unprepared for what is ahead of me. Don't get me wrong, I will love it there and I'm sure that I will adjust just great, but there is just something in knowing that I am going to another country that always is catching me off-guard. A blessing though is that I am not sitting at this Starbucks alone. I'm with a group of fantastic human beings who are embarking on the same journey I am on with similar feelings. What a wonderful thing to know that I am not alone. God has continually provided for me thus far and is continuing to provide for me through placing these lovely people on my path. I am incredibly grateful for the new work that God is doing through all of us and the preparation He is doing to equip us for the journey ahead.

Eph 2:10 For we are what He has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.
