I’m sitting at the tire store waiting for new treds while thinking, maybe we should go into the moving business. It’s due to the sudden and repeated relocating of this crowd I call family. After growing up in the same house for 18 years, changing addresses seems really odd.
2014 brought us moving parents OUT of their 50 year old home and us OUT of our 15 year old home, INTO a wheelchair-accessible house where we could care for the whole bunch under one roof! Our oldest son then bought his 1st house – proud parent moment!
And now, a year and a half later, both parents have passed, and 2 more children are off to college so we are looking to move yet again.
Another of our sons is getting married in the midst of these home changes and my husband decided to relocate his office in town, so I’m busy on all fronts. Everything in me resists these changes, yet I see why we must. There’s just no way around another uproot. Waaa
The good news of course: God goes with us. Actually, He goes before us -paving and smoothing the way, shedding His light. I can rest assure He’s directing these changes because I asked Him to and… because He loves us. He’s given instinct, timing and closed doors, advice and even financial limitations. Those are all guides I count as from Him.
Change isn’t easy, but even moving happens according to His purposes. Bring on the boxes!
So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless. 1 Corinthians 15:58
