When I recall the verse to remain steadfast and unmoved, always abounding, being present, learning God’s ways and being in His word, I didn’t always think of a mission or reason for remaining other than it pleased the Lord.
In the last eight years, our family has been on what I believe I call, training. We’ve had to learn to live and walk in a way that has been different from all that we’ve known.
When routines get canceled and the plans for what we expected our futures to be and looked like getting completely changed, the rerouting at first, was confusing and sometimes chaotic. Even in the face of the confusion, our family’s response was, Lord we’ll trust you.
I remember when God captured my heart to care for pregnant and homeless women through Carried To Full Term, my husbands’ response was how? My answer was, I don’t we’re going to get a house.
I must admit, I’d created a visual in my head of how God was going to make it happen. I imagined opportunities and doors swinging open in a fancy, poetic, slow-motion display, nope!
Nothing would be further from the truth, as the doors closed faster than a double push on the fast forward button. Looking back, I can now see how it All, was a necessary part of His plan.
We are sharing our experiences not because we are more faithful or capable. We believe we can be a source of support and encouragement to many people who are desiring to be obedient.
It doesn’t matter the season when God’s plan gets fully activated He moves forward. Thankfully, He doesn’t abandon you to figure it out on your own. He uses every experience, and every season to grow you as He’s has done with our family.
Our four children have had a front-row seat, nope! I stand corrected, they’ve been given uniforms and they’ve been participants on the court of faith moves, sacrificial living and love giving from day one.
As you are in a season of seeking or taking the first steps, we want to encourage you to trust that the Lord has placed this mission in you and He will not abandon you. Be steadfast and unmoved!
