As I sat at the dining room table contemplating a new adventure that has been placed in front of us, I became extremely overwhelmed and felt very inadequate as I thought about packing up all that we have accumulated over 17 years here to move 1500 miles away. We are leaving the kids behind (don’t call CPS … they’re all grown!), friends and all we have known for what has become the place where we have lived the longest ever in our lives. I really don’t feel qualified for the job that I have been promoted to … will we like the area … will we make friends, find a church and the list goes on. We have 90 days to get there and I broke my ankle last weekend stepping into a hole while mowing the grass. NOT good timing!!! But, just as sure as I am sitting at my desk typing this, the Lord reassured me of his love and said, “Allow yourself to be all you are in me!” Sounds like an Army commercial! Except it’s not me being all I can be through my strength and efforts … it’s Him! Ephesians 3:16-19 says, “I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in the inner man through His Spirit, and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Love that surpasses knowledge! His love that surpasses my (false) knowledge (thoughts, beliefs, inadequacies)! How great a love does the Father have for us! I am not one to allow others to do stuff for me, but I am encouraged by The Word and God’s whispering in my spirit to allow Him to do what he wants through this time of transition. To allow Him to wrap his arms around me and show me His will for this new phase in our lives! Thank you, Abba (Daddy) Father!
