The last few weeks have been a bit of a blur…hence the lack of blog posts. Last week we packed up everything that we own, and moved across the country from Texas to Pennsylvania to begin our church planting journey. We said lots of goodbyes to people that have walked through life with us, and have been a beautiful picture of what the church is.
It was surreal to pack up all of our belongings and leave a city full of people that we love to go back to the city that I grew up in. I am constantly amazed at the story that God is writing. I don’t think I would have ever imagined that this is where God would have placed us, but I am so thankful for His sovereign hand that has been working for years in our hearts and in the hearts of those we will meet.
I can feel the Lord stretching me, pushing me out of my comfort zone and towards Him. He is showing me that though things around me are uncertain, He is constant and sure. Though I don’t know exactly what the future holds, I know the one that holds the future. He is showing me that His ways are higher than my ways, that His Word is my comfort, and that I must run to Him in prayer.
And yet here in my weakness, I can see His grace so clearly. ( 2 Corinthians 12:9)
In my uncertainty, I can take to Him my heart and lay it at His feet in prayer, knowing that He hears me. (Philippians 4:9)
I can find refuge in Him, and Hope in His Word. (Psalm 119: 114)
