If you hear anyone screaming joyfully from this little town on the coast of Maine, it’s just me!!!! God has provided!!!
He has guided us to a home to plant our family of nine. His sovereign fingerprints have been all over it as the story of how we discovered this home is amazing! It has obviously been God at work and there has even been so many gifts in the wait.
In the midst of the trial of searching, we have had so much to be thankful for. Details wreathed through each of our nine lives, from great job experiences, to our 16 year old being able to work hard and purchase his very first car in cash. Days together, beach days, cousin days, church vacation bible school days. On the fly, my mom will take our teen daughter out for a coffee. Even little Kezia growing to love her papa so much as we have been in their house has been such a gift!
I am thankful that our Heavenly Father goes before us and with us. He sees the big picture and yet the tiniest detail is His. In His power, He manages to take care of all of us. He is in the midst of each of our lives looking out for us and working things out for His plan and His glory, and we can be joyful and look for His gifts in the wait.
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” (Deuteronomy 31:8).
Looking back at the trial of searching for a home these last 3 months, I have realized it is much better to focus on the blessings rather than the hard things. We can continue to choose joy and count our gifts even in the battles. We can look out for the joyous parts while we wait and see that God meant for it to be the way it has been all along.
