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.
WE HAVE TO PURSUE IT!
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?
DON'T. WASTE. YOUR. LIFE.
