I'm trying to keep this little update simple. I could fill this page with so many things right now, seeing that it's been over two months since my last post.
Here's the nutshell: We moved, we did it, we're here! I had hoped I could pop in every so often with at least a short post or a picture during our transition, but I didn't and that's okay. I really needed to focus on the move. It was a mountain of a task that seemed impossible, but it didn't take long for it to become very clear to not only us that this was what we were supposed to be doing. SERIOUSLY. The amount of miracles and provision and just the sheer fact that we pulled it off. I can't even explain how amazing it was to watch God's favor on us and see Him come through in everything even above what we could have expected.
Now we are faced with a choice. We are between a hard place and a rock. A REALLY hard place. I will admit that I have not been sleeping well because of stress and stress dreams, and I have been letting fear almost completely over take me. But, like my best friend told me last night (the same best friend who is letting us stay at her house while we have no place to live and no job....the friend who needs a whole blog with daily posts until eternity just to tell the world how amazing she and her husband are. no joke.)
Anyway...like she told me last night, about a testimony she heard of someone on the mission field faced with impossible and terrifying situations. This person had to make a choice, was she going to fear or was she going to trust Him? That's where we're at. We can't go back, but we can go forward even though we don't have any control over how we go forward. We know why we're here even if most people don't understand. And we're learning to surrender control, and choose to trust God instead of letting fear dominate us. Today I failed, and my husband fought so hard to stand firm even though I was angry and falling apart.
So, this is where we are at. We do covet all of your prayers as we need something to come through asap! We need our own place to live and we need income. And we need to be able to pursue the reasons why we are here. It's only the beginning, and we want to choose to trust Him instead of be afraid.
