Thank you , for reading our post. this was on my mind . i hope you enjoy it.
After putting my son down for the night, and i look at his toys and as my wife is getting ready to shower i look back and think to myself. It has been a good three years. I tell my self that as we make our preparations for our move to the east coast. Yes friends, my career has taken another monumental step. -i moving forward!!
I was praying one night and i felt the Lord was really wanting me to evaluate how much i truly trusted him to take control of my life. i had entrusted everything to Jesus except my career. that was mine. i loved my church family in Oak Harbor WA. i also enjoyed my location. so for me it was win-win.
so fast forward to that night while on deployment in 2011 when i was praying i felt his Holy Spirit impress upon me if i would trust him with my career? i said yes but i was reluctant, for i knew that meant that i did not have a say in where i would want to go. rather, he would direct ( which is another topic altogether). He sent us to Ridgecrest CA. Here we learned several things and met some inspirational people. many of whom we will treasure the rest of our days. T and I felt that this season of our lives was more of God allowing us to “gel” as a family. to develop our family dynamic and to rest for we were non-stop for about nine years straight.
we are rested and have been refreshed. i am now ready to move forward and to fulfill what i believe God has called me to do.
i declare this not out of arrogance but out of humility. so that i may come boldly before the throne of grace rejoicing that the Lord is on my side encouraging us as a family to continue to venture out beyond our level of comfort. to impart to those we impact. Pray for the hurting. reaching the world.
i want you to make it every day. celebrate the wins NO MATTER HOW SMALL. Get rest needed to function. love the unlovable and help the misfits fit.
