The last couple days have brought news of upheaval to our household. I don't feel like going into detail, but suffice it to say, we will be moving out of this house sometime in the next few months. I have no idea if we will move to another house in this area or if JB will get a different job that will move us elsewhere. I know that I know that I know God will take care of us and put us in the perfect place for our family, but I can't deny that the unknown is so challenging. It's the definition of faith, but it's certainly an active battle to keep anxiety at bay. Moving stresses me out like no other. I am a huge nester, and thinking about the futility of moving somewhere else here - especially when we may move, again, with another job soon - makes me seethe. I am trusting that God will work it all out. I know He will. He always does.

*Deep breaths*

On top of that, (which we found out about Monday after JB left on a business trip; nice timing, huh? He'll be back tonight,) I went to the dentist for a routine cleaning yesterday. I came out with an appointment tomorrow morning for a ROOT CANAL consult! WHAT?! You've got to be kidding me... I am royally terrified now across the board. I hate the dentist more than anything. I'd so much rather go to the gynocologist...

I DO know that everything will work out for the best, but it's been a lot for me to digest. I spent a long time yesterday going over helpful verses:

The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. - Isaiah 58:10-11

O LORD, I call to you; come quickly to me. Hear my voice when I call to you. May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. - Psalm 141:1-2

I will do mighty miracles for you...All the nations of the world will stand amazed at what the Lord will do for you... - Micah 7:15,16

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6,7

And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. - Luke 12:29-31

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? - Matthew 6:27

God, I thank you SO MUCH for the faithfulness you ALWAYS show me. I cry out and pray that you will continue to help us now, that you will help me shake my fears, get peace of mind, and rest in the calm security of Your perfect plan.


  1. amen and amen. keep those scripture promises near you! i continue to pray for God's faithfulness and provision in your life. may it be tangible and soon (our definition of soon!). may this season be a season of victory for you - victory over anxiety, impatience, unbelief! may you see the hand of God move in your life in awesome ways!

  2. YES YES YES!!! THANK YOU for praying with me!!! I love you!!!

  3. "It was not you who sent me here, but God." ~Genesis 45:8a

    I find this verse to be very helpful as I struggle with the how and the why of life. It helps me to remember that it's all part of God's big plan. Love ya and praying with you/for you and the fam.

  4. Praying with & for you & your fam, too!!!
