today marks 1 year since i moved to thailand.
in many ways, it feels both longer and shorter than a year. so many things can describe this year: trials, pain, aloneness, isolation, tears, discovery, faith, surrender, prayer, blessing. but there’s just 1 word that can completely, entirely, and so truthfully pinpoint this past year: grace.
i had some expectations prior to moving here, but i didn’t anticipate the difficulties that would mark this year. likewise, i didn’t anticipate the hidden blessings. and in addition, little did i know of the countless times of surrender that i’d come to the Lord…broken, desperate, and just like a child.
all grace. so much grace.
