Moving to New York with my family was probably one of the worst experiences I’d ever gone through. I really didn’t want to go—it was the middle of my junior year of high school and I had to leave everything behind. I was so anxious and scared. I remember sitting in LAX waiting for my plane, feeling anxiety building up in my throat, and all I could do to calm myself was read my Bible. Keep in mind, I didn’t understand any of it. I couldn’t tell the difference between the Old Testament and New Testament. Jesus, Paul, Saul…Everyone was the same to me. But I still read it religiously (haha!) for some unknown reason and I remember reading through Exodus that day. I was reading about God leading his people out of Egypt, through the desert…and it filled me with so much hope. Even though I didn’t believe or understand it, I could see God’s promise throughout the book and it just gave me hope. (1/2)
