A quick update… the kids and I are staying in Michigan – we’ve been here a month – while Corey is in Atlanta still working. We are targeted to leave on August 28th. We have a large gap of monthly pleges to fill in order for that to come to pass. Needless to say, pilule we are in a big bowl of transition and everything teeters on the edge of insanity 🙂

Onto my thoughts… these last few weeks are somewhat crazy. We’re trusting God that everything’s going to come together and yet find ourselves wondering if it really will. Of course we know God’s capable of it, but the doubts still creep in about whether or not we’re truly going to get to leave soon. We can’t wait to go.

One scripture that I am constantly going back to in order to give myself a swift kick is James 1:6-8. I won’t write it all out here, but check it out. The end says people who doubt the Lord are double-minded and unstable in all they do and will receive nothing from God. I read this scripture daily and sometimes more than that just to remind me I am not allowed to doubt what God can do.

Today was stressful. There is so much to do and so much that has to come together and I just felt overwhelmed. I went to church and the message was about fruit. The message was great, but during service God spoke to me otherwise. I read past where the speaker was reading on to Mark 11:22-26. It talks about faith and asking in prayer (again I’ll let you look it up yourself). What amazing confirmation when I was sitting there feeling like the hurdle in front of us was just too huge.

So I write tonight refreshed and reminded that God can throw even the mountains in the sea if you pray it and truly believe it. He can get our details in order and get everything together just as well. Go read those verses. Your problems will seem so small when you compare them to what an awesome God we have.
