New York City moved at the pace of my heart. Everything fit. Then came a familiar, unmistakable nudge—God was calling me to leave the sparkle and comfort of Manhattan to put down roots in small-town South Carolina.
Leaving behind the city I adored for a town that surprised me first with love, and then with heartache, it felt like God was stripping me of everything. It felt like wrath. I began to wonder if I had heard Him right. Had I ever heard Him? Did I even know Him at all?
This is a story of letting go, of choosing. Through the crushing blows of sanctification, the loss of my “home,” the end of relationships, and the betrayal of friends, I was forced to look at the darkness of my own heart. Will I walk away from Him? Or will I learn instead to walk in freedom from the fears that imprison me? This is a love story. But it’s no fairytale.
Or maybe, it is.
