"The Deep Doesn't Have Friends"
Sometimes God puts you in places and spaces that feel much bigger than you. Existing, moving, and thriving in those environments can cause you to handle a wide range of emotions and consequently can prompt you to question everything around you. Some days it can feel exciting, unique, and liberating, and other days, it will feel scary, overwhelming, and stressful. Throughout these past six months, I have experienced all of these emotions at rampant speed. Well, six months ago, I moved my life from Maryland to Chicago to embark upon a new journey. That's right! I moved during a pandemic to chase my dreams and push myself to escape my comfort zone. That bold step to me felt a little "too good" to be "true," but I was confident that I was well prepared to go anywhere where God has instructed me to go. My core beliefs say that sometimes God puts you in "too good" to be "true" spaces which translate themselves in my mind to be "God spaces." Those are the spaces where only God can put you, and only God himself can help you maintain it all. Yeah, "That's it. That's the tweet", or whatever the kids say these days. During that time, my prayers, looked like the one quoted below. I learned then how important it was to be disciplined in your prayer life, but that is a story for another time.
