Keeping the faith

As you many of you know we are in the process of moving out of the State of Minnesota. Its been a long journey so far and we haven’t even left yet. As we are counting down the days packing and cleaning, we can all sit back and remember the amazing times we had in Minnesota and all the amazing people we have met.

For a while I was getting a little stressed out, We had put a purchase agreement in on the new house in Texas but we had not yet gotten a buyer for our home in Minnesota. We had literally two days remaining before we would have to cancel out agreement for our new home. I was crying, stressing and just not in a good place. I had to remind myself that all of this was not in our hands but in Gods hands and that If I didn’t put my faith in Gods hands to deliver us what was best that I was just being selfish. I took a step back and reminded myself that I needed to pray for his will and for his guidance.

One day later We got an offer on our house. and everything has fallen into place again.

That was a simple reminder that we may want for ourselves but we need to let Gods plan work his way and not our way. we need to have faith that his timing is right and his timing is not a punishment but maybe a trial for us to learn.

Now we are 11 days away from out move, we are packed and ready to close in Minnesota then head out for a two day trip to Texas. We are ready to make new friends and see old friends. We are ready to start new in our new house and explore new places.

One of the most important things for us will be to find a new Church. A church for our family and a Church for our kids to learn and grow in.

I’m in exited and overwhelmed but I know it is going to be amazing!
