It just sounds cooler than "big realization" or "some big thought" or "something major that hit me like a ton of bricks." I like to sound edumacated every once in a while so I shall use the word "Epiphany."
Yes, while driving home from Krikorian Theater today, I experienced one. It just hit me: Bam! Now, I know that God can still change things if he wants to, but it just doesn't seem like I'm going to be leaving next year. hmm...I still have much praying, thinking, reading, meditating, praying, ruminating, and more praying to do..but...Some circumstances in my life are hemming me in and limiting my actions. And NO..it doesn't involve a guy. I know God is in control, but when it hit me..Bam...I got sad. I'm not leaving...??? I still don't know what God has in store, but I know I need to trust Him. So many questions..but through it all I pray that I can still smile.
"Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand." Proverbs 19:21
God IS good...even when my future is filled with uncertainties...and I smile. =)
