Even Here

I don’t enjoy going through difficulties.

I prefer the stage of an endeavor when you are experienced, have already built momentum, and everything is running smoothly. You know what to do, and you know how to handle the challenges that come.

The new ventures with those unknowns? Uncomfortable. The rough patches that expose weaknesses? Not pleasant. The devastations that catch you by surprise? Let’s not even go there.

But in every uncomfortable, unpleasant, and devastating circumstance is a unique opportunity:

The chance to see what God is capable of.

I am here, He says. even here.
I am capable, He says, even now.
I love you, He says, and I will not stop.

After living in South Korea for over 7 years, Elizabeth is back in the States finding a new normal. Currently in seminary, she is enjoying unpacking questions of faith in a new context. Amidst the tension of brokenness and conviction, she continues to find grace. And above all else, she continues to pursue the God who inspires childlike wonder.
