Finding Peace

Our life is a crazy mess right now. Our stuff is in three different places over the country (Dallas, Atlanta, and Henderson), we've lived out of our backpacks for the past month and a half, we haven't stayed in the same place since visiting our families for over a week, we have a lot of possibilities but none of them are a sure thing yet. We've spent many nights weighing pros and cons and trying to make plans. We've been stressed, we've lost sleep...We're starting school in a few weeks and still don't know how we're going to pay the bills. All the while trying to adjust and re-enter into this familiar yet foreign culture we're moving home to.

With all this stuff going on you would think we would be out of our minds…God continues to give us peace with our current situation. He continues to provide a place for us to lay down at night. He continues to provide us with meals and enough gas to get us where we need to go…Our God is great, Our God is loving, Our God provides in an incredible way.

We are not comfortable, we are not established, we are not successful, we are not settled.

Today I've found strength and peace in Psalms 119:73-76:

Your Hands made me and formed me;
give me understanding to learn your commands
May those who fear you rejoice when they see me,
for I have put my HOPE in your WORD.
I know, O LORD, that your laws are righteous,
and in faithfulness you have AFFLICTED me
May your UNFAILING love be my COMFORT,
according to your PROMISE to your SERVANT.

God made me and formed me with his hands. He has a plan for us. He gives me peace and patience to excitedly wait for what he has planned for me.
