From the Journal…

I stop doing laundry. Little piles spread across the bed. I grab my journal and scribble these thoughts…

God works in the middle of my fear. In the chaos of my questions. He makes a way when there doesn’t seem to be one. He answers wordless prayers. He’s so faithful.

I hear Him say, “Let me take the wheel. I won’t pry your fingers off. I’ll just love you until letting go only makes sense.”

I hear these words filling my brain-“See, I am making all things new.” “I own the cattle on a thousand hills.” “Be strong and brave.”

There are wilderness days. There are Promised Land days. And in the in between He’s asking, “Will you fall in love with me?”

We are looking for a new home. We are learning to be content in the now. And continuously, He is proving Himself faithful.

“This is my command–be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
(Joshua 1:9)
