That's why it's so hard to move forward sometimes. We take comfort in our past. It may be filled with pain, betrayal and heartbreak but it contains an element that we all long for….the known.
So here we are almost two months in to the journey to find out what God has in store next for our family and it's just as scary as it was on day one. I'll be honest, there are good days and bad ones. At times I have to preach to myself about resting on God's promises. Of course the only 100% promise (other than His unfailing and redeeming love) is that of suffering in the believer's life.
We're anxious, hopeful, ready, excited, worried, afraid and somewhat impatient about God's purpose for this season of our lives. Ultimately we have to trust that we are being led by God; that we are listening for His guidance; that the path set before us will be the one He has marked out.
We may only be able to see a portion of it and there is almost assuredly difficult days ahead. But we also know that He is in control and His path for us will bring Him glory.
