Lots has changed in my life over the last month. I quit my job at Lydia Home/Safe Families and moved back home to Indiana. I am now working for the state of Indiana, department of child services as a family case manager. Going from Chicago and living with 3 roommates in a big house to now living in a tiny apartment all by myself has been an adjustment.

With all these changes, life definitely has not been the easiest over the last couple of weeks. Change is HARD, and anyone who tells you differently is not telling the truth. I am not saying that I am not happy with the change, its just that I'm not going to lie, it has been tough. For me change is always a bit rough. Packing up my things back in Chicago was so hard for me, when all of my things were packed and loaded up, it meant that I was done there and that chapter of my life is now closed. It literally took my best friends and mom to come and give me that extra help and push to pack all my stuff. For me packing my things was more than just packing a bunch of stuff, it was packing the last 5 years of Chicago memories into boxes. Chicago would no longer be my home. All this was HARD, I tell you.

After getting back to Indy, I am now trying to settle in here and these changes are hard as well. I started a job working for the government which brings its own package of good & bad. I am also working in a very secular atmosphere which caused a bit of shock factor at first for me. I am also trying to figure out all the details of moving to a new place (though Indy is not totally new). Should I find a church to go to in the mornings before NF so I can get connected with people my age? How do I meet more people my age? How am going to balance work, school and everything else? How do I balance hanging out with my family and all the little sibs?

I am not writing this to say I am not happy, honestly I am so happy to be back in Indy and I really am enjoying this new job. I just have been challenged recently to really trust God. Tonight as I was working on some stuff around my apartment, the song Take my Life came into my head. I love this song because it challenges and reminds me that everything I do should be for the glory of God and His work. It is not about me and what I can do and am doing... 
Ever Only All For Thee
