A couple weeks ago the hubby and I got into a serious conversation about possibly moving to the south after his retirement. We miss many things about the south and have always said that we would retire somewhere in the south. We started to strategize a plan. We knew from the beginning that it was His final decision if we were to move or not. In the end, we prayed and asked Him to show us. We also asked Him if we are not to move please take the desire from our hearts.
That occurred on Saturday evening. Sunday morning during the pastor’s sermon God clearly answered us. The answer was very clearly stated because the pastor said in his sermon that you are not to move and you are to stay right where you are. Now no one except God knew about what they hubby and I were discussing.
Monday morning the hubby goes to work and receives a phone call about a job opening in our area.
Tuesday he receives another call about another job opening.
Wednesday a fellow worker tells him about another job opening.
Thursday people are offering to help him with his resume.
Clearly God is telling us we are staying.
I begin to ask Him to please take the desire out of my heart. I knew if the desire was still there then I was going to have a difficult time with His answer. I asked Him to please show me the beauty of where we lived.He began to show me so many things that now I cannot imagine leaving. I catch myself dreaming of the “what if’s” but I know that right now we are not to move. We are to stay right here. We are to have our two blessings live in a home for longer than two years. We are to stay with our church.
We are to embrace the new season God has put us in.
