Onward we go!

This is the weekend that we are moving.

This is the weekend that I finally say a permanent “goodbye” to the faces & places that I love most.

This is the weekend that we begin our new life in South Florida… (Thank you, Lord!)

This is the weekend that my husband will be starting his career in full time ministry.

This is the weekend that I get to access my adoption packet that I stored away so long ago.

This is the weekend where so many of my tears of waiting will end… (though I’m sure we will shed many more to come!)

This is the weekend that I get to be obedient to my Lord and pursue all the burdens He has placed on my heart.

This is the weekend that we are stepping out in faith.

This is the weekend that changes it all.

 

It’s all equally scary & exciting…. as it is a little sad & and a bit of pure blissmoving is just weird.

Change is inevitable. Part of me wishes I could go back and live a few sweet days that I took for granted…

all while the other half can’t wait to slam the chapter shut and get going.

How can I feel myself on the verge of tears as I’m packing my bags 

AND

also be pulsating with readiness to unwrap my future

AT THE SAME TIME???

 

Lord, Jesus! What a complex creation You have made in us. I’m so grateful that I don’t have to rely on the world and it’s shifting methods of navigating my future… that I can always have clear instruction from spending time with You in prayer. That I don’t have to worry about keeping up with the latest fad book, when Your Word will always be enough. For bringing up children. For ministry. For my marriage. For life. Please just hold my hand a little bit tighter this weekend, ok?

 

I came across this video today & it made me get really excited about my now NEAR future. I’m so thankful to already have MANY things to look forward to!!!
