In His Time

We have received all of our information and details for the upcoming Conference! It's hard to believe it's only two weeks away. Everything has been so busy lately that time seems to be flying by. How exciting it is to think that God has brought us to this point. What a long journey it has been and we are just now watching everything be revealed in His timing.

I've been reading a book called The Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson. Our pastor had recommended it last summer while we were in Brazil and then again recently during a sermon. It is such a good book and I highly encourage you to read it if you are feeling led by God to live out a dream in your life. I am so grateful that God puts desires in our hearts that only He can fulfill. He has a plan and a purpose for each of our lives and sometimes the plans include things you would never imagine for yourself. The Book describes how in order to fulfill our dreams we will almost always have to leave our comfort zone. I sure am relating to that right now!

As I pray for our home to sell and God to ready our family for the work we are about to undertake, I feel amazingly calm. Why do I say this? I guess it's because so many times in the past as things changed in my routine I sorta freaked. Why am I not stressed this time? According to "our" time-table we have 3-4 months for our house to sell? I know that if God puts us off a few months, then it's His doing, and His doings are best! This market is not seller friendly right now. EVERYONE reminds me of this...I mean everyone! The only way for all of this to unfold is for God to unfold it! What peace that gives me!!! Nothing feels greater than resting in His hands and knowing that He holds my future and the future of my family. Sure takes all the pressure off of me!
