When everything’s uprooted

If you have been following these posts, you know that the past 6 months of my life have been pretty crazy. Even more so the past month, I have moved to a new state, a new city, started a new job, got my hours cut at that new job, and have been looking for another job since then.

So the other day I had some time to go hiking in one of the nearby nature parks, it was a beautiful day, the sun was out, the snow was melting, it was quiet and I was able to just walk and snap a few shots.

I came across this tree that had fallen and been completely uprooted. I hiked up to it as it was slightly off the path. I took some time to study it, to think about it and what happened to bring it to this point. I looked at the cut end of the stump and just marveled at the number of rings that were there. I can’t even begin to contemplate the history that each ring represents. Each one a growth year, each one containing events from a time now passed.

I wonder what my life will look like when people exam the “rings”? Right now I have such an opportunity to trust God with everything, job, wedding, finances, rent, health… despite being uprooted. I know that He is moving me and I am being replanted into a new soil.

I’m so excited about all the changes and ready to continue to embrace the future that God has for me here.
