Time is perhaps the one thing that keeps movng forward whether your ready or not! DP
I have found myself in the last few days getting rid of and giving away many things. It is like the biggest purge I have ever experienced. I find myself feeling these emotions which are based on some form of attachment to my belongings. I still continued to give things away anyway as I know that it must be done. I know that I cannot take many things with me in the move. I must be practical and wise. The flesh tries to make excuses or lies to me but in the end my desire to follow God and do the right things wins out.
I am selling all of my big item furniture pieces and this will help with the finances. On some level I actually find it freeing. Like all this stuff was a form of bondage and that it actually had some control over me. Weird I know! We still have 2 to 3 more months left before we move but I feel the need to keep moving forward. I never have been or am the kind of person who just waits until the last minute to do some thing. I can be a wing it person when I have to but this is not the occasion for it.
It all really came together when we found out that an RV and land was ours. I was very excited! The Lord has most certainly been blessings us lately which to me really confirms our desire and His will for us.
I must say as well that it also is confirming His will when afflictions and troubles occur. My husband was sick for a time and then he had a car accident. All this kept him from work and hindered our finances. When talking with others who made the move it seems they to experienced the same things. Another indication we are on the right track. Times of testing and faith building can occur when you are about to move on for the Lord.
The Lord has blessed us with the refund that we received due to my Husbands car accident. Our car was a right off and they reimbursed us with the amount based on there blue book prices. This price was double what we even paid for the car… blessing. Just before this land became available to us and an RV… blessing. The amount to pay for the land monthly extremely low…. blessings and of course the community to which we will be apart of a tremendous blessing… And it continues…
Sometimes I think to myself, ” I don’t deserve such things, I am not worthy to be so blessed.” And rightly so. We don’t deserve it , yet the lord in all His mercy and grace sees fit to show us His love and show us His truth. I believe in our obediance to do His will, He is moving us forward and taking us out of Egypt and putting us where we belong. Totally dependent on Him and His provisions. What better place to be!
To Him be all the Glory and Praise forever!
