Passing Understanding

As my leaving date gets closer (9 days away - 4 of which will be spent in Tennessee!), most people are asking me how I'm feeling. Excited? Sad? Nervous? Overwhelmed?

In all honesty, I'm beginning to feel just slightly stressed over the actual packing process - getting everything organized, in boxes, and onto the truck. But it's not too bad, actually. I've been chipping away at the process, so I'm in pretty good shape.

Overall, though. I'm just calm. I know that I should be excited, sad, nervous, overwhelmed, and a dozen other emotions right now, but they are substantially subdued. I'm sad to be leaving all the people with whom I've built relationships. I'm nervous to be starting over from the beginning again - both in location and in vocation. I'm overwhelmed with everything involved in moving. And I'm really excited about following God's leading and beginning a new adventure in life and faith.

But again, I'm mostly just calm. I know I'm doing the right thing at the right time, and it's extremely peaceful. I don't understand it, but I'll take it!

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
