I spent the last year feeling like a marionette, being pulled in all different directions: aching for China, working three jobs, trying to become a better reader and writer, pouring into my students, trying to serve my family, looking for my place within the local Body of Christ, struggling to keep up with friends and be good to them…

I turned a corner several months ago. I rearranged my house and got rid of extra clutter. I began to pull away from some relationships and pour more into others. The obligation toward so many things and people became secondary. I began to answer to Him first and Him alone. Those Martha strings, once tied to my limbs, began to unravel, and new strings were tied to the Deep calling my deep.

And now I am home.
