He is Faithful

Hello and boy do I have some news for y'all!

I know that I've talked a lot about our life in Lynchburg and how much I'm dreaming of moving back to North Carolina, and after this past Sunday I honestly thought that we might be staying here for at least another year. I thought this so much that I was actually browsing through town homes and loft apartments for us to move into, simply because we can't stand our apartment!

You see, after this past Sunday I really felt God speaking to me about our circumstances and instead of fighting with God's plan, I started to plan a life in Virginia. I dreamed of  all the positive things I could do, like getting more involved in our church, joining a small group, and hunting even more for a job. After Sunday, I felt that I had stopped wrestling with God, and I had let it go; if He wants me here, then I will be a humble servant and serve Him right where I stand!

Now, things happen to work out in very funny ways, especially because not even 2 days later my husband got a call from a job in Raleigh that we have been praying about for over 3 months! I see what you did there, God. So yesterday I happily loaded up the car with snacks and a freshly bought suit for our trip to North Carolina for the interview!

To say that it went well is an understatement. It looks like my husband will be offered the position, though he has one final interview next week. I know that nothing is certain at this point, so I'm really just hoping and praying that this all works out, in His timing of course ; )

I am happier than a frog in a beetle bin! Things are looking up, and yesterday I got to spend time walking around Raleigh, enjoying my home state.

Hang in there y'all, it's almost Friday!!




  1. Such great news!!! =) Best of luck to your husband!

  2. Woo-hoo! Hoping it all works out for y'all! So exciting, I'll be praying for you. Enjoy your weekend, friend!

    1. Thank you so much, I greatly appreciate the prayers, we will definitely be needing them : )
      Have a wonderful weekend as well! : )

  3. Amazing! Isn't it crazy how when we finally trust God that His plan is better--the greatest things happen??

    1. Oh my goodness, I can't even tell you how much God has convicted me about this, definitely need to be more trusting in the future!! Have a lovely weekend friend!
