Praise the Lord!
We are so thankful to God for His blessings while we have walked through this transition.
I’d have to stop and count how many times we have moved in our 24 years of marriage, but each one has held different challenges and blessings.
This one stretched me in ways I didn’t think possible.
The Lord has taken our family through many changes and this one is as full of His lessons as the others have been.
God has been in our move the whole time and provided in ways we didn’t expect.
Yes, we had wonderful help!
Anne came for Thursday and Friday.
Our oldest daughter’s hubby spent all of Wednesday and Saturday.
It has been an incredible testimony to God’s goodness as well as a chance to learn through new experiences
Throughout this transition of buying, remolding, and moving I’ve been seeking the Lord’s face.
Because I’ve learned that on my own I haven’t the slightest idea of what is best, only through the Lord’s leading can I have discernment and wisdom.
I’ve also wanted this transition to be filled with peace and joy, not striving or disagreement.
It has been through the Lord’s Word that I’ve found the key to be able to stay in unison with my husband throughout this whole process.
Romans 12:10 KJV — Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
Neither of us has held tightly to anything, but instead we’ve prayed, discussed, and adjusted.
If we had opposing opinions on something we talked about our different ideas with kindness and gave each other the opportunity to see the individual concerns or priorities.
Continually, I prayed about details along with the general things.
We had some set backs, but rather than allow stress to rob me of my joy, I prayed and trusted the Lord.
Our plans have been changed and adjusted, our schedule has been continually shifting, but through it we have learned that we can be flexible and loving no matter what.
God has used each circumstance to give us an opportunity to trust Him more, to surrender our desires, and to prefer each other rather than demanding our own way.
It’s been a beautiful process and I’m so thankful.
Through this move we can glorify God for His faithfulness and love, His provision and direction, His blessings.
Especially, the joy of new opportunities in a new home and a new community.
Praise the Lord!
