We have made big changes! We are following God’s plans for our family and moved from our comfortable home where we have been content for thirteen years. It has been stirring in our hearts for a long time to move to the country. Our hearts desire to be simpler yet fruitful.
When we first found this home we absolutely loved it and it felt like home instantly. We had already seen lots of other homes and even been through weeks of contracts on a different home that didn’t work out. It was heartbreaking but we knew God had bigger plans and we needed to trust him. Weeks later and lots of searching we felt this stirring to look at this home but it was further than we planned for my husbands work and for our family and friends. I got scared and looked at other homes and the original one we wanted was possibly going to work out. It didn’t. Two more homes and land to build on didn’t work out either.
Heartbroken again and our home sold so we prayed for Gods bigger plan to place us where he wanted us even if it meant staying in our home. Gods bigger plans were to remove me from being content and make me uncomfortable enough to fully trust him. You see it wasn’t about moving or the house it was about trusting God with my family. Trusting God for his kingdom plans. So that home that felt like home that’s further away than we planned is ours in less than a week.
I’m over the moon excited and definitely trusting God with this. Thirteen years of packing in two weeks, memories that can never be replaced, our first home as husband and wife, our home where we lost our first baby girl, our home where we raised our two amazing rainbow babies, many years of opening our home to others, birthday and family celebrations, loss and love, friendships and motherhood. This is me, standing in the favorite spot of my new home. This is me, Trusting God because he is faithful and loving and he is a good good father and I will follow him wherever he goes.
