Stepping out into the unknown…


For the past few months my husband and I have been looking at moving to Louisville, KY.  My husband would like to attend Southern Baptist Theological Seminary to be a Worship Pastor.  I want to start blogging more about what the Lord is teaching me through this, challenges I am facing and just for the sake of having an outlet.  AND MOST IMPORTANTLY WITH A DESIRE TO GLORIFY GOD!

This last week we sent out support letters.  As I stamped them and licked the envelopes I prayed over each one and the more I went on the more I recognize our complete dependance on God’s work for how much money would come in.  It wasn’t up to me, the kids drawings on the back of the envelope or how nice our letter sounded.  It was up to our Lord what would happen as I dropped the letters into the mailbox.  I am trusting Him and continuing to pray for clarity and guidance.  People ask me, ” Are you moving for sure?” and to be honest I don’t know how to answer them.  I want to say yes because our desire is to go, but I hesitate because some things are unknown yet…my husband getting a job…the finances…and where we would live.  All along though I am encouraged by the people who remind me to keep moving forward and to keep watching for God to work it out.  So here I am today… watching… waiting…

Stay tuned for how God’s going to answer our prayers and direct our steps!

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Psalm 33:20-22

Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.

“Stand still” – keep the posture of an upright man, ready for action, expecting further orders, cheerfully and patiently awaiting the directing voice; and it will not be long ere God shall say to you, as distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel, “Go forward.” – Charles Spurgeon

To wait on God means to pause and soberly consider our own inadequacy and the Lord’s all-sufficiency, and to seek counsel and help from the Lord, and to hope in Him (Psm. 33:20-22; Isa. 8:17)… The folly of not waiting for God is that we forfeit the blessing of having God work for us. The evil of not waiting on God is that we oppose God’s will to exalt Himself in mercy.– John Piper
