Our lives must be bathed in prayer.
It’s the only way I know to walk closely with Jesus rather than following my own desires.
A few months ago, I had a moment in prayer which caused me to feel unsettled.
I felt the Lord was preparing me, that a change was coming.
Later, in a conversation with a neighbor, I began to state something about our future and I felt a check in my heart not to say what I was going to.
It was like the Lord was warning me not to commit to something, because I did not know the future.
Time went on and I still couldn’t figure out what God was telling me, but I started praying for what I should do.
It didn’t really make sense.
I wasn’t sure what God was trying to tell me, but I knew better than to argue or ask “why?!”.
I began seeking God on how and where to begin doing what didn’t make sense.
At least not at the time.
I cleaned out some closets.
Finished up craft projects.
I gave away things.
I reorganized papers and filed stuff I’d put off.
Still praying, throughout for God to help me follow Him.
Then, Handsome and I were talking about the small furniture business we have and we realized we both felt we were supposed to finish up everything we had on hand, empty our storage unit, and close our booth.
It seemed a bit strange, but we began working on furniture like crazy.
God blessed us and Handsome was able to empty the unit before September.
We let the owners of the mall know September would be our last month.
It has only been in the last few weeks God has shown us why.
My husband has recently accepted a new job in a different city.
He wasn’t looking to change jobs.
We weren’t unhappy where we are.
But God brought this job to him.
We bathed it in prayer.
Here we are.
He starts the day after our wedding anniversary, next month!
I’m sure you guessed the rest–we are moving.
Not only has God blessed us with this new position, He’s opened the door for us to buy a house and property.
We will get to live in the country again.
And we are so thankful to God!
Moving is not easy, especially as my health still restricts my actions, but it will be good
We have enjoyed this house.
Our landlord is truly the best.
The neighborhood has been such a joy.
We are so thankful.
God has blessed us abundantly.
I’m humbled by how He has walked us forward into all these things.
I’m thankful for the way He has guided us.
I’m continuing to bathe it all in prayer.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your Holy Spirit which guides and directs us, speaking through Your Word. Lord, please continue to keep our feet planted firmly upon Your paths. Help us, each one, to walk in ways that are honorable before You. Lord, as we prepare for this move, please help us to keep in mind all these things are Yours and we want to be good stewards of them. Lord, please help us to be wise and kind as we deal with all the change. Lord, please go before us and prepare the way. Thank You. I know You already have and Your salvation is all we truly need. I love You, Lord. Amen.
