I finally got around to watching Tangled, Disney’s new cartoon about Rapunzel.  One scene in particular stuck out to me.
“You okay?”  (Eugene)
“I’m terrified.” (Rapunzel)
“Why?”
“I’ve been looking out a window for eighteen years, dreaming about what it might feel like when those lights rise in the sky, what if it’s not everything I dreamed it would be?”
“It will be.”
“And what if it is?” What do I do then?”
“Well that’s the good part, I guess – you get to find a new dream.”
In a way, this time at NWC has been a dream for me – it’s what I’ve been looking forward to forever.  And it was everything I dreamed it would be, I guess.  But now it’s ending – what do I do now?  I have to find what’s next, I need a new dream.
A few weeks ago, someone asked me what my dream job would be.  I realized that I didn’t know – not really.  I’ve been looking at jobs online for months now, applying to some, but really none of them have stood out as “the one.”  None of them have made me really excited.
Jesus, make my dreams yours.  Guide me; show me where you want me to be and what you want me to do.  Use me to show your love. That is all I want – to shine your light.
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Lead me, lead me to the cross
One month left.  I want to soak it all in and enjoy every moment.
