This is a re-post from earlier in the spring when we decided that God was moving us. I just felt the need to re-read it and thought maybe I should share the update. God sold our house in two weeks when we were out of town, He dropped our new home right in our lap, He has given us a church that we love. We moved and everything was settled before my husband started a new school year at his new position here. We surrendered to the Lord and He parted the seas as we stepped out into the unknown. We have had our moments of separation anxiety from those we left behind. I have had my doubts about fitting in ~ we still sometimes wonder just what God has planned as we serve here in our new city. He has been faithful and He can be trusted. My new life is unfolding here but I can tell you it is much the same in that I am trusting my Heavenly Father one step at a time.
Re-post from April~
I have been busy with life. God has finally given us a clear direction and has opened the door to our next chapter. We know God has called us to serve Him in a new place. It is time for us to move on.
There is much to be done as I pack up 30 years of family keepsakes and prepare for a three-hour move. There is always gaining through losing. It is not far but I am leaving behind my hometown and family. In two weeks we will be moving to Jefferson City, Mo. I am so excited to see what God has in store for us in the little historic home of our beautiful and majestic State Capitol.
I never get tired of seeing this.

I am so thankful that when our world changes~ we can stand on God's promises. We can build new dreams even when we are filled with doubts. God has been preparing me for a couple of years for this move. He goes before us and prepares us for His call on our lives.
My journey has changed directions and in the surrender of my need to be in control God has given me peace in the uncertainty. God has restored the joy of my salvation and given me a new direction. In the midst of it all ~I have found that God is my all and all.
I sort of feel like a child of Israel coming out of the wilderness. I am not certain what my new life will look like but I am sure of God's promises and I am standing on every one of them. I will be back soon!
