It's been quiet here because our house (above) was listed for sale on the 15th. We are seeing lots of activity and it's been a mad dash to keep things 'show ready' with school, kids, BIG HAIRY dog and cats. But God has been blessing. After almost 17 years... it's sort of... well.... weird. But in a really good way.
We are confident of God's grace and mercy in this insane process and are beyond grateful for His sustaining power and promises to be with us always.
A few years ago I memorized this verse and have since had opportunity to have it placed prominently in various locations as a tangible reminder of God's promises over me.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~Jeremiah 29:11
I know that the plan is for me (through Christ's sacrifice) to spend eternity with Him, but I also believe that it has much to do with my life now and how God can use me if I'm willing to be obedient to His call. I long to be totally surrendered and have seen that when I am... He does amazing things!
Update: As of 1/20: The house is under contract - sale pending. Truly amazing!
Blessings on the journey~
