I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, ‘You are my servant”. I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
Happy Monday Friend!
Oh my–our house is a HOT MESS! We have been packing for the past 2 weeks to move to what feels like, THE ENDS OF THE EARTH. You would certainly guess that by the number of boxes we have in every crook and cranny of our house.
We have loved this little bungalow.
God planted us here 4 years ago to live through a unique season of life transition. We have experienced many endings and many beginnings, from careers ( I wrote a book here!) to our first taste of EMPTY NEST! It has been a little bit of both heaven and (can I say this?) hell. We have had lots of laughter and shed lots of tears. We have had parties decorated with both pity and plenty. Pretty much the story of every home, right? Pretty much the story of life. Still, each home holds its own memories and can be bitter-sweet to leave.
This weeks theme verse from our February calendar (NOTE–IF YOU DONT HAVE A LOVELY FREE CALENDAR, SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER ON THE HOME PAGE TODAY AND DON’T MISS MARCH!) is a greatly needed reminder that God is in both the leaving and the coming. he has CHOSEN us for His very own and will not leave us.
He has a plan.
Right now, we have NO IDEA what it is.
Can you relate?
Are you in a place of transition, maybe like us, and just not sure where God is taking you right now.
If so, join me today and let’s trust His plan–even if it feels like “from the farthest corners of the earth”.
Lord, thank you that even when I don’t know what is next for me, you always know. The bible says in Psalm 139:16 that you have EVERY DAY planned and your plan is for my good! Help me trust you today Lord. Help me rest and relax–even ENJOY THE QUEST–in knowing that you have me in the palm of your great hands. In fact, you have THE ENDS OF THE EARTH in your hands. You will lead me. You will not leave me. I can trust you! Amen.
Have a great Monday friend. Our official move day is next Friday.
Atlanta, Georgia, here we come!
