Sometimes you have to leave something great to get to something exceptional.
See this here. This is my beautiful dream home, the home of my dreams that we built from scratch and moved into just one year ago October.
The fact is that sometimes you do things you don't understand. Sometimes you move places and you don't know why. Sometimes you load the truck in three weeks time and make the drive and you don't have a clue what it's all about. But you embrace the day and you say ok. Where you go, I will go. Where you stay, I will stay.
These are pictures of our home and mainly our children and their joy living in this home. We made some fabulous and beautiful memories in this home in the short ten months we were there.
Sometimes the big picture has not yet been revealed. And you say God I thank you because you are the maker of the stars. You hold all things together for good. And I know that what you have done here, what you are doing here, it is good. I don't have all the answers. But I do know this, you go before me and you make a way. And the way you are making right now is a good one. I trust you, I see it coming to fruition. I see confirmations and thank you God that you are just so so good!
The train going by at my new residence of which I get to call home.
You see, if we don't leave the great we are not going to have the chance to get to the exceptional. Specifically, I'm not referring to an actual physical home that we love or even people we love. I am referring to comfort, familiarity, security, convenience I think.
I had all these things in MN, land I love. I even had God-ordained beautiful friendships and neighbors who I just met (hard to believe one year ago?!) but I feel like we are meant to be friends for life. People who you cross paths with and you just know you love them, they are your people, you know?! And then to leave. And just up and leave it all.
For the sake of the Kingdom.
God, I know you have something for me. I see you at work in my life. Thank you for my dear readers, thank you for exactly where you have placed them today. Thank you for exactly where you have me today. I don't know all the plans, I don't want to know all the plans. But I know this, I love you I worship you I give you my life. All the days of my life, in your hands, I pray that you alone would always be glorified. That people could see you, through me. In Jesus name, Amen.
Lets trust today friends, believe with all our hearts that what he HAS done and what he IS doing is more than our eyes can see. Because it is. He is preparing his people. I see it now. Trust. Obey. Listen to that still small voice.
You won't regret it.
Have a blessed day.
