On the Move

Meg

Happy New Year to all of you! We hailed the New Year with friends, playing games and chatting until well after midnight. It was truly a memorable time of fellowship!

Now that 2013 is here, my brain is spinning with all the changes in store.
In two short months our family will pick up and move 1200 miles across the country. I'll be 6 months pregnant when this move takes place, which should be interesting! It is nice being a bit more seasoned for this move. The strange term PCS is one I've heard before. Moving can be exciting. My husband and I love exploring new places and nesting in different cities. There are so many knowns as well though. Where will we live? Where will we go to church? Will we make friends quickly? How will our little girl adjust to the change? Will we be able to get my prenatal care quickly taken care of? What will it be like giving birth in a city where we know no one? And the lists and questions go on.
Plus, it’s hard saying goodbye. When is it honestly not? My heart is rather sad to think about leaving this place. As much as I haven’t liked being 21 hours away from family, this place has truly been home. The people, the experiences, the memories have all implanted on my heart. How have four years passed by so quickly? We moved here as newlyweds, had our first camping trip, explored so many new places, made dear friends, had a baby, watched her grow and change, and experienced our first deployment.
So many memories.
So many unknowns.
And so, what do I do with my swarming brain, filled with questions and thoughts about the unknown?
I focus on what I DO KNOW.

He is always with us:

Where can I go to escape Your Spirit?
Where can I flee from Your presence?
If I go up to heaven, You are there;
if I make my bed in Sheol, You are there.
If I live at the eastern horizon
or settle at the western limits,
even there Your hand will lead me;
Your right hand will hold on to me” (Psalm 139:7-10, HCSB).


He brought us to this place, blessed us with wonderful friends and memories, and will continue to do so as we move on. As much as I may be anxious about moving to a new place, it’s nice to know that His plan is still well and good. He sees the entire picture, and will not stop providing for us when we move. He will put just the right people in our lives, at just the right time, just as He has always done. As we continue to seek His face and His will in our lives, He will continue to provide:

For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. You will call to Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:11-13, HCSB).
