“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”  ‭Psalm‬ ‭118:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Three months ago the husband and I decided we were going to move to the Queen City. We set a date of July 1 and put the wheels into motion while prayerfully asking God to place obstacles in our path if this move wasn’t in his will at this time. We spent weeks flying back and forth looking at places, interviewing etc. Then God tested our faith in a major way… Requiring us to take a huge leap, one that many would call crazy, and majority of people would never do. We quietly packed up our entire life. No going away party, no announcements, just pretty much said hey we’re thinking about this, to hey we left.  We hired movers to haul it all and drove down to Charlotte with 5 kids not knowing where we were going to live exactly…Thank God for amazing friends! It took us a week, (another test in patience) but was well worth the wait and God rewards faithfulness.

Proverbs 28:20  “A faithful man will abound with blessings.”

and when God pours the blessings down they will be beyond what you ever expected and what you thought you even deserved…and I am in awe at his work. I saw this house on the first day of our search, came back to see it a second time and fell in love, but took it off the list because I for starters I felt it was too expensive and didn’t believe we deserved something so amazing so soon… (A lesson in humility) Luke 14:11 ESV “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” Proverbs 22:4 ESV
“The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.” We applied for a different house and were waiting to hear back. The property manager called and said you’re approved but sorry we have to put you all into something bigger, go check out this other place. We did and do you know the place they recommended was the same exact place we saw and loved on day one… God is so good.
Can’t wait to show you all as we start decorating!!!! Welcome to our new home 😉
