In 30 days…no really like 2 weeks!

February 13, 2008

In the following 30 days, our life will dramatically change.  I look forward to seeing why God has ordained us to move from our home here in B’ham and relocate to Nashville, TN.  Why do I say ‘ordained’? Simple, we have fervently prayed as many of you have done as well and He has answered.  Where two or more are gathered, He is among us and hears us!

1. Brian has been hard pressed to get good paying work here. He got a 2nd job- working now about 70hrs/week. We prayed…

2. Among others, Brian applied for and has been offerred a job in TN- a GREAT job, mind you.  He starts 2/29. We prayed…

3. What about our house? We prayed… ummm… are you sitting down?  The first one to look at it, made and offer and we accepted.  The second one to look at it wants it too and is on standby in the event that the first doesn’t work out.  Both deals within $100 of each other and want us out by 2/27. Any idea that God is listening? I think so!

I want to first thank all of you that have prayed with us over this.  We have truly loved living here in B’ham.  We are sad to leave our new friends and church home.  Our long term goal has been to end up in TN so it was a bit of a surprise for the details to work out so soon.  With our God, anything is possible.  He has been so clear to us when it was time for us to know.  We had said at one point that if the only thing holding us back was the issue of selling our home, we couldn’t hold back- even though the market is so crazy.  Any old timers remember what happened when we were getting ready to move to KY?  All the open doors came within about 30 days of us having to leave.  So this past Thursday when we were told of the two contracts coming on our home and the dates, I asked Brian ‘Can you believe this, and the timing?’ He said ‘as a matter of fact, I can!’  I will be packing now.  And then I will be unpacking. 🙂 So if you don’t hear from me for a bit, do not be dismayed. Please continue to pray that things will work smoothly and may we all find comfort in this answered prayer and give God the glory He deserves.

    Amazing! I am so thankful that it is all so clear and you KNOW what you are supposed to do. Clarity is a wonderful gift from God :0) Many blessings as you make this transition!
