Oh boy! Here we are again! In this same dreadful place called the unknown! Why is it that something as small as a piece of paper in an envelope can change your whole world one day! I’ve been trying, with God’s help, not to let my circumstances limit God and determine my joy! Today we were slammed in the face again! It’s not the news that’s the harshest part of it really! No, it’s the future results of that news and the direction it might take us! We don’t know whether to fight or give in, whether to scream or just cry, whether to go forward as if nothing’s changed or admit everything’s about to change! We’ve been praying for direction, wisdom, strength, and truly felt we were where God wanted us! He orchestrated all of this so smoothly! Now? When I say where God wanted us, I didn’t necessarily only mean in this state we live in but in the state we’re in, with what we’re surviving, only by His grace! But we aren’t sure now! We continue to pray, trust Him and wait to hear His soft whisper in the midst of this chaos and confusion! We know that God wants us to know true peace!
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God you needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4: 6-7 TLB

We know He wants us to prosper! “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 TLB

We also know that every time we end up here, we also end up where we need to be….back on our knees…..hearts may be broken right now but He has picked up the pieces so many times before and we’ve been all the better for it! We have to trust and wait for His perfect timing! It’s the in between time that we are stumbling in…..God guard our steps, hold us close to you as we cling to the cross and to Your heart for us!
“Yet there is one ray of hope: His compassion never ends. It is only the Lord’s mercies that have kept us from complete destruction. Great is His faithfulness; his loving-kindness begins afresh each day.” Lamentations 3: 21-23
“Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him to help you do it, and He will.” Psalms 37: 5 TLB

Direction will come……
“I will instruct you (says the Lord) and guide you along the best pathway for your life I will advise you and watch your progress.” Psalms 32: 8 TLB

Thank you, Abba, for what you are about to do in our lives! Our hope is in You and our future home with You, one glorious day, in Heaven!
