Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

When the dust settled

Thoughtfully penned on July 19th, 2007 and generally concerning God's at Work in My Life, Satisfaction, The Glory of God, You're moving again?

Sometimes we are led on journeys that don’t move us physically but still have great impact in our lives. We have been on one of those journeys these last ten days.

On Monday, Matt had multiple opportunities open up within a matter of hours. On Tuesday, he spent the day interviewing with a local company. On Wednesday, he met with his current boss. Today, we have come full-circle.

The “for sale” sign is gone. The boxes are being unpacked. We are staying right where we’ve been – in our house with Matt continuing to go to the same job each day.

Physically, we never moved; spiritually, God has used these ten days in a mighty way. We have seen Him move in great and mysterious ways. We have been stretched in our faith and humbled by the plans of God.

I continue to pray that through this we bear witness to the faithfulness and provision of our Lord. And today, I rest knowing that “many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” (Proverbs 19:21, ESV)

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. We love y’all! I commend y’all for being so focused on God’s will through this whole time! :) Seems like months ago that y’all starting talking about moving! I am looking forward to hearing what God does in your life with relationships, the church, and Bubba’s job! There’s gotta be a reason he wants you there!

  2. It looks to me like you’ve been tested and passed with flying colors! I’m so glad things can “settle” for you!
