Independence… Restarted

During a time when the mere hint of independence seemed taboo in our city, I moved back to my minimalist independent unit after the 3-months long third wave pandemic that claimed the lives of about a hundred individuals (mostly elderly).

Originally planned to move next week instead, but an argument with my mom hastened the move, both of us can use a timeout. My through-the-year bible devotion plan also reached the end of the Old Testament last week, I figured this could be a sign that God is telling me to start life anew and to complete the New Testament in a new place for the remaining 3 months of 2020.

One of my biggest worries about moving out is leaving my elderly parents behind, but then I know my brother is living right underneath them and can be of assistance in case of emergency. Moreover, I have been thinking a lot about a backup plan to move back to Canada since the National Security Law was imposed in our city on July 1st, moving out on my own is probably a good intermediate step to ease my parents’ over-attachment to me.

Oh Lord, may You let me start life anew in this new place You led me back to. More importantly, please continue to protect and bless my family while I’m away trying my best to follow Your guidance. ??
