Where YOUR treasure is.....

Last night, TJ and I prayed together. Pleading with God to show us clearly the path he wants us to follow. I heard a sermon a few weeks ago from our new pastor regarding discerning God's will for our life. It brought me peace (again) that God has a plan-a clear plan-that He doesn't keep these plans a secret.


Fears about moving to Kenya that I have been sharing with people recently have been:

as a mom, will moving to Kenya make my kids hate me when they are older? I mean, what about all the 'stuff' they are going to miss?

will homeschooling be too challenging?

what about retirement...that's what I'M concerned about! What do we do when we are 65-70 yrs old?
I mean, I worked for it, now I should enjoy it, right?

"If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." Matthew 16:24-25

I got my answer today. I GOT IT GUYS! Through my tears, I post this. God met us with this. What am I thinking? God knows my needs!

Watch this. Watch it again. Watch it three times and share. Does this change your perspective on whatever it is you may be battling with?

Love this, Lindsay! Oh that we would live in reckless abandon for HIM. The American Dream is NOT God's dream. I want God's dream - it's better, even if it looks like foolishness to the world! God is going to take care of you and your family as you seek Him above ALL else! Praying for you!

Retirement is not a Biblical concept, you know! Didn't get a chance to watch the video, but Aaron & I have already discussed not retiring. Oh, we may not be in the same jobs, but there's too many things I want to do to "quit" working when I'm 70!
