Finding Our Feet

So the auction has come and gone.  The house has not sold but strangely enough our peace has arrived.  The landlord who owns the house did not come to the auction but his parent did.  They have told us that we will be fine here for our lease and that if no one else buys the home, they will and sell it at a later date.  They seem like honourable people, so we are now praying they will keep their word and trusting in God to see it through.  We had given it all back to God and now he has taken it, and given us His peace and time to watch what he has for us unfold.

Yesterday we had an amazing day with our church family at Morwell Community Church.  At night I was able to share with them a part of our journey with God, specifically about Sam and our life now.  It was wonderful to have the opportunity again to encourage and uplift others.  I had forgotten how much I love it and it has inspired me to continue to write my next book.

For the past few months Don and I feel like we have been stumbling through the fog that often surrounds our lofty mountain home.  Just when we thought it was clearing another mist would arise and seem to block our vision.  And it seems that now we have stopped striving to see, things are clearer and we are now not anxious about the future.  Our live's journeys with writing, MAF, and Sam and our family have all been placed back where they belong at the foot of the cross.  And now we wait and keep our hearts fixed upon Jesus waiting for his call to step one way or another.  Finally we are home where we belong, resting in Him, whatever that means.

Have lovely weekend everyone.  Thank you for praying with us.  And remember...

God’s way is perfect.
All the Lord’s promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. (Psalm 18:30)

Hi Nicole,
Thanks for updating us. It'd be great for you to get to keep living in the home that suits all your needs so well.
And thanks for the reminder of what's really important when it comes to making plans. It's so easy to get stressed out with wondering whether what we've planned will come to pass.

Hi Nicole. Thanks for this post. Things are pretty uncertain at times and that has been your world for sometime now. I'm encouraged by your continued choice to lay it at the cross. Thank you. Thank God. x

Hi Paula, Thank you for your valued prayers and thoughts for us. Yes, thankfully our plans are often futileand God's are everlasting.

Hugs Kelly. As you well know, all that is left at times is to leave it at the cross. My shoulders were designed to carry God's love to the nations, not the burdens of this life.
