I'm making big decisions. Signed a lease for my first apartment a week ago. I move in one week.

I've been talking about moving for years now and I honestly believe that this is going to be a turning point in my life. I realize that moving isn't a 'cure all' for the issues that I've struggled with the past few years, but I certainly believe that it's a step in the right direction for me.

This is going to be tough. A good kind of tough, though. An adult, mature, responsible toughness. Exactly what I need. I know that I am capable and ready for this but it's still nerve-wracking.

I've just been praying for the place, the apartment building, the people already living there. I want it to be a good experience. I have to remember too that I didn't sign a 30 yr. mortgage, it's a one year lease! I'm not locked in forever by any means. It's a small, cute place on the bottom level of an apartment building.

I've already bought some stuff and I need to get some furniture very soon here. I'm excited. God has always been faithful and I know that he will provide for me as I enter into this new season. I hate my doubt. It's gonna be a tight budget. But, again, when has he ever left me hanging? Never. I need to keep that on my heart as I enter this week and prepare for this move.
