He needed to mend old wounds. He needed to show me Himself in all aspects of life. He needed to walk me through messes, mistakes and sin. He needed to reveal to me that I wasn't truley His. He needed to show me what it was to stop running. He needed to show me love.... friendship.... surrender.
And boy, did He ever!
So, now I am moving back to Ohio not defeated as though things didn't work out here in Lynchburg, but as a New Creation. I am not the same person that I was when I came here. I belong to My Creator, My King, My God. I am His daughtor.
And maybe Ohio is colder and flatter and it doesn't have
In 15 months, He has changed me, and I am forever grateful.
As my time here draws to a close, I am finding that He is showing me how to tie up loose ends and have the conversations that need to be had. So that I can drive out of this town with the knowledge that I did my best to honor Him in all areas of my life- including moving back to Ohio.
I will be cherishing every person, every hug, every inside joke, every opportunity and taking nothing for granted.
Lynchburg, you have been good to me. So very good.
You will always be a special part of "home" for me.
