The past two months have been super chaotic, but in the best way possible.
A couple of posts ago, I alluded to being in a season of waiting. There were several things I had been praying about for a while(almost 2 years), and I knew I was close to getting some answers. Over the last few years, I had really been feeling like our family needed to make some changes. I wanted a more flexible work schedule, more time with the boys, and more time to serve in some sort of ministry capacity. Considering our finances, Chris and I knew that we would need to sell our home for ANY of those things to be possible. That wasn’t too hard of a decision because we’d already discussed wanting to move closer to our church and “town”. So, we listed our house in the fall of 2011. No bites. None. Seriously. None. We knew it had to sell before I could leave my job with the school system. So, I began digging those spiritual ditches by adding Christian Counseling to my certification and volunteering at our church several days a week. I prayed and prayed and prayed. And, recruited friends to pray. Still, nothing. It was frustrating to say the least because I KNEW my heart was being changed by God, and I KNEW he had some different plans for us. Finally this spring, Chris and I decided that I would go ahead and turn in my resignation anyway. Around mid-April, I talked to my principal and let him know that I wouldn’t be returning for the next school year. And, then…God let me know that He had indeed been waiting on me to show a little faith all along. Less than a month after turning my resignation and more than a year and a half after listing, we got a contract and sold our house!! We are in the process of trying to find another house to buy, and I will begin offering full-time Christian Counseling services at our church later this summer.
GOD IS SO STINKING GOOD!!
We still have a thousand other decisions to make, but I have never been more excited about seeing what’s going to happen next!
