It has been a few weeks, but we have started to settle in here. Of course it has been below zero much of the past couple weeks, but God has been good to us. As we get started here, I just wanted to share something again that the Lord has been teaching me. I look back at the past year and am amazed at how God led us to where we are. I would not have placed myself here now, but there is such a peace that comes from knowing this is where God has us. We were able to pack up our things, drive out here, get unpacked, and make meaningful connections without having too many melt downs. That is God’s work, no doubt about it.
Today I am walking in the confidence again of knowing my calling and resting firmly in it.
“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers — not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve.” – 1 Peter 5:3
Even more amazing is that way that sun has been coming up even in the cold. It is like God is smiling on us and reminding us of His blessings to come. I look forward to them and all that He will accomplish in 2014.
