High and Low

Filled With Praise


I would have to say the biggest high from this past week has been...drum roll please...selling our house! After two years of trying, and then giving up after Lily was born, we had basically given up hope we would ever be out of here. There's a long story behind all of this, but it really is an awesome testimony of how sovereign our God is. We actually sold our home to some close friends, and we are going to be moving to their house while Erik finishes up school.


Well in typical human nature, I suppose it goes without saying that my high has also been my low. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled that we don't have "strings" to our town anymore-in the likely event that Erik will be getting a job in a different town than we live that's a HUGE blessing- and I'm so glad we were able to sell to friends who will love living here, and have space for their growing family. However it would be silly for me to pretend that I'm not sad to be leaving the place I've called home for the last 4 plus years.Also practically speaking, we are moving to a place decently smaller in size, so figuring out what to keep and what to put in storage or throw away has been challenging. 


"For I know the plans I have for you,"declares the Lord,"plans not to harm you, but to prosper. Plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

How thankful I am to be serving a Sovereign God! That is one truth I keep coming back to in my mind. Honestly we don't know what the coming months have in store. We just know that a lot is coming our way! Between moving, a baby on the way, and probably moving again, I honestly don't think I'd be able to keep it together if it wasn't for knowing that God is in control of everything. And I can rest in knowing that all things will work together for our good and his glory(Romans 8:28.)
