I know that I have been on hiatus for quite some time, and recently my journey has changed, I suddenly have the urge to write again. I am now on summer break with the kids and I no longer have a job, and I have some free time, so I thought I would share an update about us and the new adventure that God has us on.
Ever wonder where God can lead you in our journey? Recently, My husband applied for a job in North Carolina and got hired. The catch? We live in Wisconsin! I was established there we had a great church, wonderful friends, I had a great job, and we lived in a great neighborhood along Lake Michigan. Well not thinking he would get the job… He did. I have to admit I did pray that God would bless us with this change, because well…. The snow in Wisconsin got a little old after living there for 8 years. If you have ever lived in Wisconsin you can agree the snow likes to stick around for months making winters long and dreary! Spring never shows up like it is supposed too and it is still cold in May. So once my husband was offered the job we put our house on the market and bought a camper trailer to live in until we get an offer on our house, because we can’t buy another house until we get an offer on our home in Wisconsin. So my family of four and our 75lb lab made the 6 state move to North Carolina to live in our camper. It was perfect timing my little ones were just finishing up school for summer break… so why not have a summer adventure right?
Our house is still on the market (it has been a month since it was listed) and we are living in our camper (it’s only been a week), but I have learned a lot in the last week. God has put me in a place where I have to rely on him and to “Be still and know.” I have to trust in him, and I know He’s got this and he will send the right buyers to buy our home in Wisconsin. He has gotten us this far and has opened so many doors for us and closed the ones that led us to this point. Even though we are in a situation that would not be ideal for most, I have chosen to trust in God and rely on him to open doors for us and guide us where we need to go. If you are feeling discouraged with change or not sure what path to take in your life it doesn’t hurt to Pray about it… Talk to God and grow closer to Him, what have to got to lose? It is better to be optimistic about your situation, because God will never lead you to a place where you aren’t supposed to be. I hope that this blog post can bring you some inspiration and optimism to your current situation, because God will see us through our current situation and I want to document these mom moments in faith to be an inspiration to others.
