so let's talk about this upcoming move we're about to embark on.
God has seriously been doing some crazy things in my heart and making me realize a lot about myself.
and yet, even in spite of myself, God still does amazing things.

ok, let's just say that the job chris took here in texas wasn't all that it was made out to be.
and so we spent a good portion of our time here in texas in a constant state of anxiety and stress.
i have never experienced anxiety like this in all my life.
and literally probably one of the loneliest times in my life. literally, the only thing we had to look forward to were my niece and nephew's ball games on saturdays (which were awesome by the way).

so here we were, resources very limited, both financially and socially.
two months of job searching later, we're moving to north carolina.

but let me share the many ways God has been working in this...
  • we're moving to an area that we have had a heart to move to for years. let me clarify...we literally sat in a parking lot in the town 20 minutes away from where we're moving, FOUR years ago and asked God to bring us there. and just when we thought the door was completely closed, here we are.
  • there are financial pieces that have fallen into place in a way that only God could do
  • God is giving us an opportunity to pour heart and soul into a community that needs it. to be honest, i've missed that.
  • there are mountains. enough said. ;)
  • there are seriously so many layers, that i honestly don't even know how to put it into words. all i know is that i am wholly committed to God and that means that a lot of people, including family, do not understand my life.
  • the song that's been on repeat lately - "oceans" by hillsong united.
    • "spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever you would call me. lead me deeper than my feet could ever wonder, and my faith would be made stronger, in the presence of my Savior"
several weeks ago i posted about needing spring in my life.
well, it looks as though spring has sprung!


  1. To be fully obedient to GOD and his calling is hard on anyone -even family to understand. I know that you're doing the right thing in your heart if you felt that pull from HIM. We all just want you to happy no matter what state you live in.

  2. Praying for you all! God is awesome!
