It’s been a busy but blessed weekend. The last two weeks have been so crazy for our family. But through it all we have once again been so blown away by God’s faithfulness.
The sale on our home fell through two weeks ago.
We begged God for answers.
This journey continues to be one of our greatest lessons in learning how to trust unconditionally. It’s been one of those roads where we have found ourselves drawing so near to His heart…
…because being even an inch apart from Him would surely cause us to sink.
Through it all–the victories and the struggles–God has shown Himself to be steadfast in our lives–so faithful in this storm. He’s stretching our faith and stripping us of the things that we hold onto.
The things I hold onto.
The things that I have placed such importance on but that really have absolutely nothing to do with eternity.
He’s stripping away the dross…
…so that only that which is pure and lovely will remain.
He’s calling us to lay everything we have down for the sake of following HIM with all that is within us.
Sometimes it’s so hard for me to let go. I cling, I hold onto people and things in my heart and it’s excruciating to move on.
And He gently reminds me yet again to “seek the Kingdom of God first.”
Through a series of crazy miracles that can only be GOD, we moved again. We still find ourselves looking back and shaking our heads at just how He provided for our family in this season. Perfect timing. Perfect place to settle until our house is officially sold.
I have been reminded of how easy it is to trust the LORD when things are going well. When life is going as we planned, it’s so easy to shout His praises from the mountaintop.
But how easy it is too to take our eyes off of His face when the valley feels like it will never end.
The truth is that the Father longs for our praises…
…and out of season.
When life is beautiful.
And when life is messy, unpredictable, and nothing makes sense.
I long for my faith to be so unshakable in the storm.
“I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” ~~ John 16:32
Deeply at peace.
We’re loving being together as a family again. Anthony is here and that makes everything in my world beautiful. We’re getting back into our normal routines and life feels so much more complete with my amazing man here with me. For that, I am so ridiculously thankful. Anthony is one of the greatest gifts that God has ever give me. How blessed I am to know the kind of love that still makes my heart beat faster even after all these years!
God has been good. His grace, His mercy, and His ability to provide for our family takes my breath away.
I only pray that He will find us faithful in all things–running our race with perseverance and giving Him the glory in the good times…
…and in the tough times too.
