We're setting out on a road trip tomorrow to try to find a place to live in our new city. Half of me is thrilled and half of me is completely nervous! This feels different somehow than all of the other times I've house-hunted. I know that just the right home is waiting for us and it's only a matter of lining up all the pieces and allowing ourselves patience and trust.
I have such high hopes for our new lives and the changes that are in store for us. This move is so much more than just a physical relocation. Some very fundamental things will change, affecting both the shape of our daily lives and the bigger story that my husband and I are writing together. So while it's terribly exciting, you may also sense some anxiety in my posts over the next few weeks. Big changes, even wonderful ones, can really fill up your mind and heart and overwhelm you at times. I'm taking lots of deep breaths these days.
Secret things belong to the Lord, and future things are secret things.
Really, we aren't supposed to have all the answers. God is the keeper of our futures, the keeper of life's secrets. I'm resting in that truth today.
