The decision has been made. It’s time to move on.
Since early December I’d been feeling that this year, 2012, would be a year of transition. Of change. Of growth.
I had no idea how that would play out, and I certainly had no idea how right my intuition would be.
Change can be chaotic.
Going into the second half of this year, we are preparing to remodel our kitchen and living room, and possibly put the house on the market. We have no idea which direction we will go yet.
It can be hard. Life-changing even.
We prayerfully decided to start looking for a new church after nearly 17 years in one place.
Transition. Trusting God that he knows better than we.
And sometimes change is a blessing.
Last weekend, our son asked his sweetheart to marry him, and she said yes. Next spring, we will be adding another daughter to the family, and we couldn’t be happier!
Transition can also be scary. Especially for parents.
Another school year is nearly done. Our daughter has finals at the community college this week. Her high school years are over, and her AA degree is nearing completion. She turns 18 in just 2 weeks. Transitioning into adulthood.
So we trust.
Trust that God is who he said that he is and he will do what he said he will do. Trust that our kids are held in his hand and that a hair doesn’t fall from their heads without his knowledge. Trust that he will lead us exactly where he wants us to be, where we can grow and our kids can thrive with other like minded believers.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverb 3:5-6 NLT
