Moving In God’s Power

IMG_7182

Hello friends and family, and God bless you all!  I finally have a chance to catch my breath from everything with the move and I wanted to share some more praise updates.  God continues to move in power as He makes the way for us to Florida!  We sold our home in only 3 days!  We had a total of only 8 showings and it ended up being the very first showing on Friday that made the offer.  We all signed the contract on Sunday, we already passed the inspection yesterday, and everything is moving forward covered in blessings!  God is so good!  Thank You Jesus!

Thank you to all of you who are praying for us!  It has been a challenging yet rewarding week with all the heavy lifting and cleaning, but we got it done in the power of the Holy Spirit, and except for some sore muscles, nobody got hurt.  The pod is almost totally packed and we have all the heavy stuff out of the house.  Just a few more days in Colorado, then we head southeast towards Oklahoma early Sunday morning.  We plan on driving through Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Mississippi, then travel along the gulf coast into Florida all the way down to Port Charlotte.

I’ll tell you what, even after all these years following the Lord, He never ceases to amaze me!  If something in your life is God’s will, absolutely nothing can stop God from accomplishing that purpose in your life.  If He makes a way for you, He will see it through to completion.  We still have to do our part and be ready to act and do what it takes to get there, but it will be God who blesses us with victory.

I am also amazed at how much strength and stamina the Lord gave me!  Even after 8 1/2 years of suffering Celiac, I was able to move way more than I thought I could.  Angels had to have been helping us because we moved some real heavy items without any trouble.  It still amazes me how we got our big couch out of the front doorway without breaking anything.  So glad that is done, praise God!

God also blessed selling and giving away a bunch of our stuff on Nextdoor, and we were able to clear out everything we wanted to part with.  I was even able to give my nice snowblower to one of the mover guys who helped us when we first started packing.  Many of you might remember that my snowblower broke a year or so ago.  It is only a few years old and everything is great with it, except the spark plug port needs to be drilled and tapped.  He is going to fix the spark plug port and use the snowblower for his snow shoveling business in the winter.  It was awesome to see how blessed he was by that.  The Lord also opened the door to share my faith with him and preach the Word a bit.  God is so good!  Always be ready to talk about Jesus and stand up for Him, even when you’re in the middle of a move!  You never know when God might use you!

It’s been such a busy week that I haven’t been keeping up with news or social media much, which actually has been kind of nice.  I’m sure everyone is still arguing about politics, Covid, masks, and social distancing, and I probably didn’t miss much.  It’s been refreshing to just focus on my family and spend time in God’s Word and prayer.  I recommend everyone turn off the news and stop listening to all the hatred, lies, and fear, and start loving each other like Jesus told us to.

Thank you all for your prayers!  We are excited for what God has planned for us and we know that He is in control of all of it.  I stand in awe of what God has done and I feel humbled and blessed to watch Him at work as He moves in power!  May His glorious will be done!

Grace and peace to you all!

  3. Glad everything is going well with the move so far. I’m wondering where in Arkansas you’ll be coming through. I’m in central Arkansas. I’ll continue praying for the move. I know that by itself can be an ordeal and stressful sometimes.

  6. Being able to see the hand of God even in things as apparently mundane as moving a heavy couch without personal injury or breakage is a tremendous gift and comfort. It’s a reminder for us that, to God, nothing is temporal – everything is spiritual.
