When I think of this word a number of ideas run through my mind. Things I struggle with right now … wanting a church where I will feel fed, yet… needing to meet the needs of my lad who attends Cadets at this church and needs boys he can grow up in the faith with, and a wonderful middle school group that discusses the sermon after church. I think about all the things I want to get done in the house before our move and feel tuckered out by physical limitations too often. I think of the grin on hubby’s face with a job granted him, even though it’s not the one he really wants (and is well suited for). I think of my bunnies and how I want to care well for them, and wondering how to best do that with an impending move. So many thoughts run through my brain. And then God reminds me that he has it already worked out. He moves, he builds faith.
