This journey of moving has been all about walking by faith. We knew God was leading us somewhere. We didn’t know where. Texas was a possibility, North Carolina made the list, and Wisconsin was considered. We prayed and prayed. So many circumstances we experienced over the last year proved to be God guiding and leading us to this new place. We’ve tried to find just the right house, yet that wasn’t proving to be fruitful. So we are embarking on a new adventure I never expected. Buying land and building our home, all debt free.
When you walk by faith, staying true to the convictions God has revealed to you, you will be tested….sometimes over and over. There are many emotions with the thought of leaving our current life and moving to make a brand new fresh start. I am still grieving over the loss of our baby boy only two short months ago. But yet. God leads. He is good. He knows the future and holds us in hands. We can trust in Him fully and continue this walk by faith. Every.single.day.
We are currently working toward buying 8.1 acres. It is a beautiful piece of farmland. It is level and dry. The view is beautiful. Prince Charming and I were walking the driveway again the other day and I said, “Babe, I need to know from your heart why we are doing this?” And he ever so comforting said, “Because we need a completely new and fresh start.” I knew that because we’ve talked about it all along, but I needed to hear it again.
This property came about unexpectedly. It has a rich heritage. We had to move and act fast. I think that was the hard part for me. With real estate decisions, I prefer to take time to research, plan and inquire about perspective properties. But here we are. I am more and more excited as the days go by. One of the things I want to do first off is plant a rose garden. I can’t wait to see how God continues to lead.
I encourage you ladies if you are a wife to have confidence and trust in your husband. God has placed him as the leader of your home. Allow God to minister through him to you as his wife. Pray for him. Allow your heart to be vulnerable and honest with him. Work hard to be in unity and have grace for your husband. These are some of the thoughts that as a wife I’ve been having as we go through this major life change. I wanted to share and hope it encourages you.
May God be glorified in all the not so average mamas/ladies today! 😀
