Wandering in the wilderness

Dave & I are in the process of finding another church…after raising our kids in one on the other side of the county. It has not been an easy decision for me because it’s more like God is nudging Dave to go a different direction than my habits have formed.

I wonder what Sarai said to Abram when he came home & said,
“Honey, we are moving.”
“Where are we moving to?”
“I don’t know exactly; just come with me…………………..”

And Sarai would be thinking about the details of packing all their worldly possessions and meals for all the servants and what is going to happen next while Abram is thinking about the promised land or something. I have no insight into his mind. I can easily imagine hers, though!

So, in the now, I am trusting God & calling my husband ‘Boss’ and not being frightened by any fear. This is not a politically correct attitude~but it comes right out of the New Testament in a book called 1 Peter in the third chapter. I have been laughed at for respecting my husband’s authority in our marriage but I think I can trust God to be right on this one.

Dave and I have had deeper conversations and an increasing love & respect for each other as we wander around our wilderness following God. I’m excited about the future, and the part of the Body that we will be planted in next.
