Day9: Desiring a Straight Path

IMG_0004

Today’s post is a piggy back post from yesterday.

We had to make quite a few decisions in our recent journey and not all of them where the “right” one – I put that in parenthesis because I don’t think there is always such a thing.

We were faced with a choice to move to a certain place, so we researched, visited and felt God’s leading.  We said yes and then a couple weeks later had a conversation with someone else about an option in Atlanta.  Atlanta is where we are now.

That process was hard.  I learned that I care way too much about what others think and that i’m afraid to disappoint people.  I even wrestled if I really could hear from God since I really felt led at first to the other place.

What if God led us to say yes to the other place so that I could grow in those areas?

What if we made the wrong choice choosing Atlanta and are suppose to be in the other place?

What if neither of these were the the right choice and there was another option that we didn’t even check out?

I don’t know.

What I do know is .  .  .

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28

This is what I rest in.

We don’t always like the curvy path – we want it straight.  Sometimes it does happen that way but most of the time not. I don’t know about you but things very rarely go the way i absolutely expect it to.

This was one of the biggest areas i’ve grown in, in this process.  So now as we think and pray about what’s next, where Josiah will go to school and where we will live after this year – i truly do have a peace. With this anxious heart of mine, that is a testimony truly of how God can grow us in the midst of change and transition
