It's a Journey... Not a Destination

"Eventually, you will learn to relax and enjoy the adventure of our journey together." ~ Jesus Calling

I wonder sometimes how many times things will change or how many times someone has to remind me that life is a journey, not a destination before I finally get it.  The last couple of months have brought good news of big changes in my life, but for whatever reason, I'm gracefully terrified.  I say "gracefully" because I seem to keep it closed in, rather than running around like a banchee.  But if you ask me how I'm doing, I probably wouldn't be able to lie very well.  Truth be told, I'm excited, but fearful at the same time.  I'm not quite sure what the fear is about other than at the young age of 31 I'm finally stepping into a job where my skills and talents will be used at a full-time capacity.  I'm getting ready to be the lead therapist for a group of teenagers at a mental health hospital.  It's odd to some folks as I LOVE this age group, such impressionable minds and a wonderful opportunity to be a significant role model in their lives and encourage them.
But often times I wonder why in the world they would ever listen to me. Now maybe I'm being presumptuous to think they do indeed listen to me, but I'd like to think so. Then there are so many times I go back to the years I wrestled with God over this journey and I remember so clearly deciding to take a leap of faith, trust Him, and see where it is I end up. For now, here I am. I'm about to embark on a career path that I couldn't be more excited or passionate about. I'm still fearful, but I believe that comes from knowing something BIG is going to happen with this leap.
I guess only time will tell...
