Putting our house on the market and following God’s leading 

We are in the process of getting our house ready to sell. What a job! I have sold houses before. But I have never sold a house I was living in. Let alone with my husband and six kids! This is going to be a tough season. On top of it, we are waiting on the Lord step by step for the house God will lead us to once this one is sold. 

We purposed when we got married we would work tirelessly until we got out of debt. And boy did we. We also committed that once we got out of debt, we would never go back unless it was to save our life or one of our kid’s lives. So, until this house is sold, we do not know where we stand in buying our next house. And that’s ok. We are living by faith. We are praying for God’s will to be done. That’s all we want. 

In the mean time, we have taken down all the pictures in preparation for painting. We have fixed a multitude of little things that were on the to do list. Yay!!! It’s all coming together. A week from now, we will be knee deep in trying to keep a house immaculately clean while homeschooling and raising our six little blessings. We can do this! 😀 

 Prince Charming and I take decisions like moving very seriously. God has made it so very clear this is His will for us at this time, and we are excited to follow His leading, even though we don’t know the specifics of it all. He does. He loves us. He is going to do great things in us as a couple and in our kids. He has big plans for our family. We simply want to obey and follow. We are His disciples. In the Bible, God demonstrated how He leads people. There are many examples of the act of moving being one of those ways that He leads. My heart is full as we embark on this journey of change. It isn’t without it’s struggles. Trust me on that. The spiritual warfare is unbelievable. How do I overcome and still have a full heart? The lyrics to the song “All the Way My Savior Leads Me” explains it best. If you don’t know this song or haven’t heard it, find a rendition of it and memorize it. 

All the way my Savior leads me,

What have I to ask beside?

Can I doubt His tender mercy,

Who through life has been my Guide?

Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort,

Here by faith in Him to dwell!

For I know, whate’er befall me,

Jesus doeth all things well;

For I know, whate’er befall me,

Jesus doeth all things well.

All the way my Savior leads me,

Cheers each winding path I tread,

Gives me grace for every trial,

Feeds me with the living Bread.

Though my weary steps may falter

And my soul athirst may be,

Gushing from the Rock before me,

Lo! A spring of joy I see;

Gushing from the Rock before me,

Lo! A spring of joy I see.

All the way my Savior leads me,

Oh, the fullness of His love!

Perfect rest to me is promised

In my Father’s house above.

When my spirit, clothed immortal,

Wings its flight to realms of day

This my song through endless ages:

Jesus led me all the way;

This my song through endless ages:

Jesus led me all the way.

I have been writing about how God is awakening me in a new way. It is nothing of my own doing whatsoever. After having two miscarriages in a row, and holding my precious baby boy that had only been growing in my womb for 12 weeks, I should be a mess, depressed, not wanting to get out of bed. But I am alive and honestly well! I am so thankful for life! Baby Isaac will forever be remembered and treasured as one of the sweetest babies I have ever laid eyes on. God chose ME to be his mama. His not so average mama. I had the gift of seeing his preciously formed body. His tiny little hands and feet. The Holy Spirit surrounds me continually with His comfort. It is because of Him that I can say, “Lord use me to help other women to love you, their husbands and their children.” 

I encourage you to follow His leading in your own life. Don’t ignore that still small voice that is guiding your mind and heart. Let your desires be His desires. Pray for His will to be done in your life. Be a woman of humility. Be welcoming to the hearts of others. Embrace the divine appointments that you encounter. 

I will close with the most recent way God continues to lead me. My favorite Psalm in the Bible is Psalm 91. It is so precious to my heart. I read it often, and reread it. It is comforting. It guides my thoughts in the right way. It is foundational encouragement to my heart. Yesterday I opened up my email. I had a new email from Doorposts. They have a wonderful ministry. The title of the email was “Study Psalm 91/Bible Study Instagram.” It was like water to a thirsty soul seeing that email! On March 1, there will be a Busy Mamas Bible Study using the platform of IG, on my favorite chapter in Psalm! We will study for 30 days. If you are interested in joining in-follow Pam @doorpostslady! You can also follow me @anotsoaveragemama. Let’s study together and be encouraged! 

May God be glorified in all the not so average mamas/ladies today!
