It hurts. But its coming. My friend and I had a conversation about this before she left. We knew that something big was coming in these next few months, and when the next time we saw each other, everything, inculding us, would be totally different.
And sometimes you don't even know what to say. You have to look to God to discern what in the world you are supposed to be learning and taking to heart, because in this day and age its too easy for voices to fade in with all of the rest.
Don't let the world pass you by or mix you up or confuse you. Just stop and listen. Don't you see? God wants ALL of you. Not just five minutes of sitting there trying to focus on praying an empty, unheartfelt prayer. He won't relent until He has all of you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vthhuSxetac. ) and if He has to break you until He gets the real you, He will, all because He loves you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWL-Fa8Q-oU).
Just don't hide. Trust. Believe in your best friend--Him. Because we all know what happens when you don't follow where He wants you to go. It doesn't work.
