The last three days have been a whirlwind of activity. We have been richly blessed with the help of many friends to get us from one house to the other. Friends with trucks and trailers. To me, it looked more like the entire neighborhood was moving, but it was just us!
We worked all day yesterday, and some friends stayed late into the day to help unpack. We ate chocolate, burgers, and laughed at the fact that I have lots of kitchen stuff, but am not much of a cook! We talked, teased, and everyone heartily approved of our new dwelling. We even got in a game of baseball with my children. It was good, and very full.
Today, my body aches and I'm still tired. I don't see myself going anywhere today, or doing too much. I hope to rest. We still have a lot of work ahead of us. I'm thankful for the blessing of friends.
I don't know what lies ahead for us, but whatever it is, I know that God will lead us. I will continue to move in His direction and continue to listen to His will. Right now, He is still telling me to just be still and know that He is a mighty God. So, still it is.
God walks in the midst of my life, carries me, and I think sometimes drags me, He brings me to new places so I can trust Him more. He is Constant. In Psalms this morning, I enjoyed this verse:
I'll give you the best of care if you'll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I'll answer, be at your side in bad times; I'll rescue you then throw you a party. I'll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation! Psalms 91: 15-16 (Message)
This verse is so true for me. Through everything, especially my pity parties, God still has taken very good care of me, and He has always answered. He has rescued me over and over again, and He has brought celebration into my life many times. He is the God that creates big moves in my life and then hangs on to me as I step forward. What an awesome God!
Lord, Say That Again today, You are the Mover in my life and You have a plan that is best.
