I can see uncertainty in my husbands eyes at times. The same uncertainty that I have, at times, let creep into my soul. Perhaps it is not uncertainty as much as a fear of change.
However, God is always there to reassure me. Julie, you are doing the right thing. I have been preparing you for this for many years. Speaking to your heart and opening doors for you. Why are you doubting me?
Why is it so hard to listen? Why is it so hard to leave your comfort zone even when you know God is telling you to?
This thing he is asking us to do is exciting and fills my heart with joy. Our children are excited, the younger ones speaking of our journey with enthusiasm on a regular basis.
Down deep I know why I doubt. It is the others. The others we will have to tell of our plans. Those who will not understand, think we are crazy, and question every decision our family is making.
I was laying in bed early this morning thinking about all these things when I opened my Bible and this is what I saw written in the side notes next to Luke 2.
Faith is the one area of our lives where growing up means we must grow to be more like a child, trusting simply in the goodness and complete knowledge of a Father who has our best interests at heart.

Dave and I are excited about this journey. A journey we have only accepted after much prayer and consideration. A journey we are embarking on because we do not want to miss the great blessings God surly has in store for us.
I will tell you all about the details of our journey next week.
Until then please pray for our family that we will have the courage to step out in Faith and do this thing that God surly does have planned for us.
Have a great weekend.
