Here it is! My first blog post describing my journey into the next chapter of my life. At this point, I have already said one goodbye (and cried buckets afterwards). Goodbyes! They are super hard to say and leave you feeling so lost afterwards. However, the grand thing is that this wasn’t a goodbye forever, just a goodbye for now. I am almost completely packed. Those close to me now have dropped jaws. I know. I know. Amanda Gregory. The AMANDA GREGORY does not have everything packed at least two weeks in advance. Well what can I say except that maybe I am already changing. I can tell you that Amanda Gregory is feeling super emotional. Which is also atypical. However, the one constant that remains true in all this is that the Lord is by my side and He is my all-seeing, all-knowing Father, who I can trust. I was reading my Bible today and Isaiah 26:3-4 says “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.” When I am feeling scared and confused, lonely and unprepared in the coming days and weeks, I know I can trust in my Jesus and He will be a faithful comfort.
So as I go into this next chapter of my life, my adventuring heart is singing, “Ready or not, Scotland, here I come”.
