This weekend will mark my second trip to Chicago this year. I haven’t visited Chicago this frequently since I was in high school! And while I wish I was going to the STORY conference, I am excited to see how God uses this weekend to speak to my family, my friends, and me.
I’ve had this unexpected sense of absolute excitement as this trip has gotten closer. This may seem odd since I am going to Chicago for my grandmother’s funeral and I don’t really feel at home there anymore. But, I haven’t been able to sleep well this whole week because of this bubble of overly active butterflies in the pit of my stomach. I have a few other things planned for this trip.
I know God is with me. I know He has big plans for this weekend. I can’t wait to see all the surprises He has in store this weekend. I can’t wait to share my heart and my journey with my family and friends.
Here’s to safe travels, a God-filled weekend, and reconnecting with long-distance friends for all of us in Chicago this weekend!
