New Beginnings

"Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him... Those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth." Psalm 37:7,9

God is so amazing! I am so thankful to finally be in a place where I am learning to surrender all to him! When we do that, he makes things so clear and he has things worked out when we have no idea! What am I ranting on about? Well, my husband was recently hired for a new coaching position which means that we are moving.....AGAIN!

My daughter has a hard time when it comes to moving because everything is about friends! So I told her the other day that daddy has a job that requires us to be on the move and that we have to make an adventure out of it and embrace it. We always find the good, but we do make lasting friendships that we hate to leave behind.

It all came so suddenly and it's almost as if I did not have time to allow it to all sink in. I tend to get anxiety about moving and such, but I caught myself the other day and I said, NO! Give it to God and he will work it out!" I prayed for God's will to be done and for him to open doors as far as housing, a job for me, the kid's making the transition, etc. Well, because he is the awesome God he is, he did just that and then some. We were able to find a great home with just the space we needed at a ridiculously reasonable amount. The kids are elated about the move. It's closer to their grandmother's and my bestie! As far as a job for me, things are looking bright!

I must admit these last couple of years have been a challenge. A real trying time, but God allowed it to be and we rose to the challenge, trusting and relying on him every step of the way. I am so thankful that he saw fit to bless us in such an amazing way! I will continue to enjoy my life while always trusting and finding rest in him!
