In my last post I explained that David was losing his job and that we would soon be without a real substantial income. Over the last few months, I have been blessed to be a part-time nanny to a beautiful baby girl. It has been a good thing for me to feel like I’ve been contributing to our finances, but most of all it has been a blessing to enjoy sweet baby cuddles!
David has been looking for a job for over a year. We put our house on the market and sold it almost a year ago. We have been living with his parents ever since. We continued serving at Pulaski while he searched. It seemed as though every door that opened was quick to close. We were anxious to know when we were supposed to move on. And we were curious where God would call us. But at the time, it seemed He was telling us to wait. So wait we did.
At the time David was told his position was being cut, he had been talking to a couple of churches in the New England area. He was a few steps into the process with both, but we had been this far and further before…so we had no reason to be overly hopeful or excited. But we both felt peace! We both knew that this was the time God had ordained for us to move on. The when was answered. The where was yet to be seen.
Things progressed quickly with one church and I felt the Spirit speaking peace into my heart: The time is now. Do not fear. I will not leave you hopeless.
As I write this, I am sitting in the airport. We are on our way home from Granby, Connecticut, the place that God is calling us to next. We have spent the last five days visiting a church family that has welcomed us with open arms. We are so excited to see what God will do in and through us at Valley Brook Community Church.
It has been such a long road. But God is ALWAYS on time. Waiting is never fun. It’s never easy. But it’s worth it!
Please continue to pray for us as we make this transition. We have a lot of moving details to figure out. We also had the opportunity to look at houses while we were there and are hoping to put an offer in on one ASAP. Pray that we get pre-approved for the loan and that God will continue to clear the way for us.
We are humbled at the power and love of our great God. He knows all things. He only gives us good things. Praise Him!
