It has been an incredible week. A week full of surprises, of moments of WOW, moments of "you have got to be kidding me" and just being overwhelmed at His presence. If I were to go running today, I'm not sure that I could do so without tears of joy running down my face and trying to keep my hands down. I'm sure I would be running with raised hands. I have no doubt.
I had not shared this with anyone here on the blog or on Facebook. Some know and some don't so I chose today would be the day to share. Bo and I are going to Mississippi in light of being called to a job for Bo. The was not something that we went looking for. We both are very blessed here. We both have great jobs and we are settled. Life is good. We have great friends here. This was something that was a complete suprise. The great part is that the Lord was not suprised. He knew. We will be going to a formal interview and the opportunity to look around and see the area and what they have to offer. We have not made a decision yet but we know what direction we are headed.
We are excited. We are seeking the Lord. We are seeking His direction. We are confident in His leading.
We have an incredible Sunday School class. We have become very close. We share. We learn. We pray. We laugh. We fellowship. We love on each other. We dig in the Word and we are watching Him grow each of us. We shared with them when this journey first began. Today, knowing that we will be going to Mississippi for the interview, this precious group of men and women that we love so dearly, gathered around us, laid hands on us and prayed. The power in the room was almost mind blowing.
We went to worship after Sunday school and once again, the Lord just kept confirming over and over. We ARE to go on this interview. My heart is leaping out of my chest just writing this post! We both felt and knew without a doubt we were going. To close out an incredible praise music time, preaching and even baptism, we got to the last song. I thought I was going to drop to my knees right there on the floor until Bo grabbed my hand we headed to the altar. With tears rolling, Forrest and Tristan praying, we had answers, we had direction, we knew that we knew that we knew, we were being obedient in going to Mississippi on Thursday. WOW!!!! That was all Bo kept saying and I was just speechless. All I could do was just grin. AMAZING!!!! My God is wonderful!!!!! I have included the song that Dennis and the praise band closed with.
We don't know what will happen during this trip. We don't have the answers to so many questions. Yes, we even wrote them all down. The key is that I know the Lord has the answers. I just trust Him. Trust Him! Just give me Jesus!! We would love your prayers. We will keep you posted on this journey. There is peace in Him!!
