THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
I am now at 100% support for the summer with Josiah Venture in Slovenia and it is all thanks to you. My family, friends, church, and even strangers. I am in kind of in a shock right now in terms of God’s everlasting provision.
I mean, I’m sure everyone can enter a stage of shock whenever some big things happen that is outside of our control.
This past weekend was ACU’s graduation. Being able to see so many friends walking that stage and celebrate their coming future was so good to see and experience. I was able to meet one last time with people I most likely would not see for a while and it gave me comfort going into my last year at ACU.
Through these coffee conversations with people I have come to a realization about my own coming future. That whether it is storytelling, teaching, ministry, or anything, my future has no control over me. Yeah, I know.. “Mitchell, is this seriously another ‘yes, and’ blog?”…”Mitchell, we know that the future is terrifying.”
Yeah, I know. But, it was encouraging to have these conversations nonetheless.
I listened to this song earlier this semester and fell in love with it. There were many times I wanted to share this but selfishly I wanted to keep it for myself but I’d figure I should just share it anyway. Because it is that awesome, and also quite nostalgic.
I haven’t been to many concerts, but I have seen American Authors in concert before, I’ve always loved their music from the moment I started listening to them, in fact one of my best friends, Tyler, introduced me to them (congrats on your engagement by the way). So when they released this song, I spent a lot of time looking back. If you have been a weekly reader of my blog you probably know that this semester has been one that has stretched and forced me to grow.
From the week I started this blog I have reconciled many relationships, reconciled myself, and have truly taken the time to discover what it is that speaks to me. I’ve remembered a lot of my past this semester, and now I want to look at a future that is promised. A future that as long as I am looking for God, looking for hope, for light, for love, I don’t have to be weighed down by my past remembered.
I know I said this post would be longer last week, but I think I am actually going to close it out now. I’m excited for the next chapter. Get ready world because many things are a-changin’.
Again, thank you for your support. Financial and prayerful. God is so good and has shown me His faithfulness time and time again through all of you. I am so excited to be in Slovenia in just 15 days!! CrAzY.
A new chapter is beginning. Looking to the now. To the present. A future promised.
and so I take this journey onward, excited to say #sLoveYourNeighbor
(that is a play on Slovenia, and Love).
